Kristi Kubicki promoted to Director of Program Support
September 2, 2020
Kristi Kubicki, M.S.W. of South Bend, IN, has been promoted to Director of Program Support for Bridge of Hope National. Bridge of Hope is working to end family homelessness across the United States by engaging Christian churches in Neighboring. Kristi joined the Bridge of Hope National team in November 2016 as Program Curriculum Specialist to focus on curriculum writing and resource development. Since 2018 she has served as Program Consultation Specialist. In her new role, she will continue to provide program expertise and support for staff across the Bridge of Hope network, with a focus on case manager development and supervision. Kristi will also oversee program resource development and implementation, particularly in regard to Bridge of Hope’s volunteer training.
Prior to joining Bridge of Hope National, Kristi worked as a Bridge of Hope program case manager, “I experienced the power of people working together, supporting each other, and creating friendships resulting in a once-homeless family being fully empowered to achieve their own personal successes. Bridge of Hope is life-changing for all who are involved, and I’m truly grateful to be a part of it.”
Bridge of Hope Neighboring is a unique model of walking alongside at-risk single parents with children. Families receiving Bridge of Hope program services work with a case manager and are also matched with a group of 6-8 Neighboring Volunteers who provide tangible support, encouragement, and emergency help like occasional childcare or transportation. Neighboring Volunteers also share their network to make connections for employment, housing, and other resources. This strong, three-way partnership, between the family, staff, and Neighboring Volunteers, has proven to be consistently effective in ending and preventing family homelessness.
