Bridge of Hope-Helping with Personal Needs
A Place to Hang Out
Sometimes it is hard to find a quiet place. The hang out room is a large coffee-shop environment where you can eat a hot meal, get a cup of coffee, watch some TV, use the free wifi, and enjoy some friendly conversation.
Hang Out Room is open Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
On Thursday mornings at 7:00 a.m., we have a free breakfast and time together to make personal connections. Each breakfast, we consider a question of the day, such as "What color is your mad?", "If I could change one thing about our community....", or "What brings you the most peace?" These conversations give us a chance to hear from all of our community members. Bridge of Hope partners with area churches to provide lunches four days a week.
Shoes and Clothing
Bridge of Hope's Clothing Boutique has clothes for people of all ages. Whether you are looking for something for a job interview or you need a pair of shoes, let Virginia know what you are looking for, and she will help you find something.
Clothing Room is open Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Showers and Laundry Facilities
Sign up at the front desk to schedule a load of laundry or a shower. Towels and toiletries are available.
Please feel free to talk with our staff about special needs you have, such as needing to see a nurse, a social worker, an educator, or a counselor. We have some professionals that come to our facility to assist, and we have a network of resources that might be able to meet your needs.
One of our unique programs is a bicycle repair shop. Those who learn to repair and maintain bicycles may earn one for their personal transportation.
Gardening and Maintenance
Bridge of Hope grows a lot of the fresh vegetables we enjoy at our meals, and we also grow additional food for our friends and neighbors. Participants learn the entire garden process, from planting to harvest and food preservation. We also have a tool library of both garden and household construction tools.
