Donate to provide safe shelter to youth experiencing homelessness.
Annually, The Bridge works with nearly 1,000 youth experiencing homelessness. But we don’t do it alone. It’s your support that makes our mission possible.
“I don’t know where I would be now if The Bridge hadn’t been there for me. The Bridge gave me the space, support and resources I needed to be safe, and to come up with a plan.”

The Bridge strives to make youth feel comfortable, loved, and at home – whether they stay at The Bridge for a day, or a couple of weeks. We do that by providing all basic needs, and hopefully, a little bit more than just the basics. The Bridge has limited storage space, so we can only accept new items by appointment only. We are unable to accept unscheduled drop-off donations. To schedule a donation delivery in advance, please email [email protected]

- Target (Gloria’s Place emergency shelter for parenting youth)
- Target (Marlene’s Place transitional living program for parenting youth)
- Target (Outreach Programs)
The Bridge only accepts new items at this time; we do not accept used clothing, sheets, bedding, pillows or other items. This is because we have limited space for donations, and we strive to keep a clean, organized environment.
Donor Advised Funds
Through careful planning you can maximize your charitable giving to The Bridge, amplify your impact, and minimize your tax burden through Donor Advised Funds. Getting set up today will allow you to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax deduction and then recommend grants from the fund to The Bridge for Youth over time.
