The growing shortage of affordable rental housing, along with a simultaneous increase in poverty has left many working Americans homeless; hit hardest is the pink collar working mother. The typical homeless family today is comprised of a mother in her late twenties with two children. Too often are single mothers found in situations they cannot control; this is where Bridge of Hope comes in.
Bridge of Hope is a National organization that provides homeless and at-risk mothers with permanent housing and financial stability, through employment. Throughout the mother’s journey with Bridge of Hope, local affiliates are able to bring together a professional staff, as well as trained church mentoring groups.
