Bridge Communities Statistics and Program Outcomes

Bridge Communities has helped 588 families cross the bridge from homelessness to self-sufficiency and permanent housing.  In 1999, Bridge began to survey client families one year after they exited the two-year Transitional Housing Program.  Results from the 2012 surveys indicate that while in the Transitional Housing Program, Bridge client families developed the skills necessary to achieve productive, self-sufficient lives.
