Bridge Communities Statistics and Program Outcomes
Bridge Communities has helped more than 750 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 2013 exits surveys indicate that while in the Transitional Housing Program, Bridge client families developed the skills necessary to achieve productive, self-sufficient lives.
