Join us for the Bridge of Hope Spring Gala, held on Friday, May 10, 2024 at the DoubleTree Resort in Lancaster!

Back by popular demand, Niro Feliciano will return as our 2024 Gala Guest Speaker! You’ll want to be there as she presents the power of uncertainty. Uncertainty can either have power over us or develop power within us if we learn to sit with it. It is one of our six human needs and is how resilience is built and our faith grows.

The program also includes a message from CEO, Edith Yoder, and stories from families in Bridge of Hope.

Supporting this event allows you the opportunity to raise awareness for family homelessness and help moms, like Alexis.
