Bridge Ministries is a faith-based, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization supported by local congregations to serve the most vulnerable in our community. Located in Southside, Bridge Ministries focuses on preventing homelessness by assisting people in crisis situations to pay their rent or utility bills or to secure temporary emergency lodging.
When families living in local shelters are ready to move to permanent housing, Bridge Ministries can help with security and utility deposits. A number of its clients are referred by local hospitals and hospice services. Bridge Ministries also helps individuals to obtain dental care, eye glasses, prescription drugs and other durable medical goods. It also maintains a small pantry of non-perishable food and personal hygiene products.
