A Church-Based Approach to Ending Family Homelessness

The Bridge of Hope Model

Since 1989, Bridge of Hope’s program model has been implemented to end and prevent homelessness for single mothers and their children. 

Through three-way partnerships between homeless single mothers, trained church-based mentoring groups, and trained case managers, the model has shown an 80% success rate.  

Women graduate from the Bridge of Hope program having attained permanent rental housing, financial stability through employment, and a support network of friends from a church in their community.
