WHY WE CARE
Homelessness is often thought of as a hopeless problem with no solution. However, each day we are open at The Bridge Care Center we see signs of hope - both as we help meet tangible daily needs, and as we build relationships and connections to resources that can encourage people to take steps toward long-term solutions.
We truly believe that every individual's story is important and that every person at the BCC has value and worth. By journeying alongside people in their difficult times we can bring hope in the midst of what feels hopeless through proactive case management, genuine care, and strong relationships. We provide a bridge between other service providers/non-profits, the city, and faith communities who all believe that together we can be part of the hopeful solution for the men and women we meet and care about each day.
We invite you to learn more about how you can become one who cares along with us.

"I wish people would be more open minded to the fact that homeless people are the same as anybody else... there are some (people) that are trying, trying real hard to find jobs. I'm so happy because some of them who come here have found jobs."
