“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, and confusion into clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow”(Beattie, 1990)
On behalf of The Bridge for Youth, I express our deepest gratitude for the bravery and beauty of youth, for the love and patience of our staff, for the caring leadership of the board of directors, and for the generous hearts of our community.
Together, we center youth voice, justice, and equity in all we do, and empower youth experiencing homelessness through safe shelter, basic needs, and healthy relationships. United, we envision a community where all youth feel safe, accepted, and supported.
For our #BFYcommUNITY, we are deeply grateful. Have a gentle and joyous holiday season.
Much gratitude and grace,
Lisa Mears, Executive Director
The Bridge for Youth
