Opening August 2020: Gloria’s Place
The Bridge is proud to announce the opening of our newest program, Gloria’s Place. Gloria’s Place will be the only emergency shelter in the state of Minnesota specifically for unaccompanied, homeless parenting youth and their children. The program will provide emergency shelter, food and clothing for up to six homeless unaccompanied youth (ages 15-17), and their children (ages 0-3) as well as much-needed supportive, wraparound services.
We need your help to turn what’s currently an empty space into a temporary home for parenting youth and their children. Purchase items off our wish list or make a donation today.
Your Gift Makes a Difference!
Thanks to the continued generosity of our donors, The Bridge impacts the lives of thousands of youth and families. Please consider making a gift today to help ensure the vital assistance we provide is available now and into the future.
2020 marks the 50th anniversary of The Bridge for Youth
To celebrate this anniversary, every month throughout the year we will highlight Faces of 50, recognizing some of the thousands of individuals who were impacted by The Bridge and who have contributed to our efforts to serve homeless and runaway youth.
This month, Faces of 50 features Amanda, a former program participant at The Bridge for Youth. Amanda currently attends Minnesota State University, Mankato and hopes to become a pediatrician. We are proud of Amanda’s resilience and accomplishments!
