Client Success Stories

Tieara: "It was like an angel stepped into Tieara’s life!"

The Bridge Communities' tutoring program has a huge impact on the individual lives of dozens of children each year.  But occasionally, something magical happens in the tutor/student relationship that goes above and beyond.  Such is the story of tutor Grace Kelly and student Tieara.

Tieara was only in 2nd grade when her family entered the Bridge Communities transitional housing program.  A quiet and withdrawn girl, Tieara struggled to earn C’s in reading and math and did not make friends easily at school.

“I’m just so much enjoying my life right now."

Today, Sue is a happily married mom, homeowner and career woman.  Her son attends high school, and her daughter has graduated and is attending vocational training for her dream career. Her life now is a far cry from the one she was living a few years ago when she entered Bridge Communities’ Transitional Housing Program.

Once the victim of domestic violence, Sue fled her abusive marriage and found sanctuary through Bridge Communities.  She and her children worked hard in the two-plus years they were in the Program, and they are now peacefully enjoying the results of their efforts.

Ying: "I treasure this time in the Bridge Communities program."

"I treasure this time in the Bridge Communities program," says Ying with a twinkle in her eye. Her beautiful face looks like that of a 30 year-old belying the fact that she is actually 48 years old and parenting two boys, Sean who is 7 and Kevin who is 3.

Ying exemplifies the way the Bridge Communities transitional housing program can transform the life of a family within the short, two-year program period.
