2019 Bridge of Hope Conference
Wednesday, October 2 – Friday, October 4
This year’s theme is… Neighboring Together • Stronger Together • Better Together
Each year, the Bridge of Hope network gathers together to connect, network, and learn from each other and experts in their field. This year, with our theme of Neighboring Together • Stronger Together • Better Together, we will gather to celebrate our mission of engaging Christian faith communities in ending family homelessness through neighboring relationships that demonstrate Christ’s love … Together!
We will begin our time together with a Pre-Conference Session on Leadership: Wholeness Matters, followed by three Joint Sessions on Community Partnering to End Family Homelessness, Sharing by Bridge of Hope Locations on their Partnership Experiences, and How Collaboration and Generosity Increase our Impact. The following days will include three additional Joint Sessions on The Church: Relevant or Relic?, a Homeless Simulation, and Whole Family Case Management.
Our days will be filled with practical and informative workshops on topics about Program Implementation, Bridge of Hope Strategies and Fundraising/Board Leadership with the opportunity to collaborate, learn and share.
The evenings include many activities inviting you to relax, laugh and enjoy the company of your network neighbors.
