Donate to provide safe shelter to runaway and homeless youth.

Annually, The Bridge works with nearly 1,000 homeless and runaway youth. But we don’t do it alone. It’s your support that makes our mission possible.

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.

Our in-kind needs are constantly changing and vary by season. Current needs are listed on our Target and Amazon Wish Lists below:

  • Amazon
  • Target (Emergency shelter and street outreach)
  • Target (Marlene’s Place supportive housing for parenting youth)
  • Target (Gloria’s Place emergency shelter for parenting youth)

The Bridge does not accept used clothing, sheets, bedding and pillows.
This is because we have limited space for donations and we strive to keep a clean, organized environment.
