Are you a homeless Single Mother?


We may not be a shelter, but we are able to move quickly to provide housing when we have an opening.  Read who we serve below, if it matches your circumstances, call us.

Welcome to The Bridge to Hope, a transformational housing ministry.  We direct our efforts toward single mothers and their children, especially those who are trying to escape the devastating effects of homelessness.  Families turn to The Bridge to Hope in their efforts to overcome homelessness.

The Bridge to Hope is a program of recovery from homelessness.

To qualify for our program, you MUST meet the following qualifications:

  • you must be homeless
  • you must be a single mother
  • living apart from the husband, boyfriend or significant other at the time you apply for housing
  • have children under the age of 10, nor more than two children
  • you must be willing and able to work full-time, you do not need to be employed upon entering
  • the mother must be drug free prior to entering our housing ministry, if you have struggled with substance abuse, be engaged in a program of support

If you have children, but they are placed in the custody of DCS (formerly CPS), you may still qualify for The Bridge to Hope.  We welcome you to call and discuss your situation.

The Bridge to Hope operates with these requirements to emphasize commitment to success and to ensure the safety of the children and other families on campus.  The Bridge to Hope offers each mother training in skills needed to maintain a full-time job and establish a savings account, which are essential to financial independence.
