The Bridge for Youth centers youth voice, justice, and equity in all we do and empowers youth experiencing homelessness through safe shelter, basic needs, and healthy relationships. Our vision is a community where all youth feel safe, accepted, and supported.
The Bridge is a safe and welcoming place for ALL youth. Current programs at The Bridge include emergency shelter and transitional housing for youth – including parenting youth and their young children; individual, family, and group counseling; specialized case management for crime victims and youth who identify as BIPOC and/or LGBTQ+; phone and text crisis intervention; and street, site, and mobile outreach.
When you can’t go home, when you feel shut out, when you just need a break, The Bridge for Youth is a safe and accepting place that’s open and available whenever you need us—24/7/365—at no charge.
