WORKING POOR AMERICA

By: Maura Sirianni

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.  The goal is to empower the mom, introduce her to mentors and life-long friends who will serve as a support system, and ultimately help her achieve the level of self-esteem she needs to get back on her feet.
