Partnering with Landlords to End Homelessness
March 9, 2021
Bridge of Hope is opening doors for families experiencing homelessness. As a landlord, you hold the key to a home and can make housing a reality for families facing homelessness.
Housing is a basic need which provides a foundation for growth in other areas of life. Families facing homelessness are often a single mother with 2 young children. Faced with increasing obstacles, including wage barriers to affordable housing, domestic violence, and diminishing employment prospects, many find themselves paying more than half of their income on housing.
Through Bridge of Hope, families receive holistic services that find solutions to safe and sustainable housing, financial stability, including through employment, and strength and resiliency for every family member. Bridge of Hope also connects each family with a group of 6-10 Neighboring Volunteers from a church, Bible study, or house church. Neighboring provides the tangible and emotional supports we all need when going through a rough time, and provides a buffer to future crises so the family remains housed.
