This year our theme is “Be The Bridge”. We want to emphasize to our supporters how crucial you are as “bridges” for the single mothers in our program. 

Bridge of Hope Harrisburg Area is a local non-profit organization committed to ending and preventing homelessness for single women and their children with the help of trained mentor groups within local congregations. Single mothers living in Dauphin and Cumberland Counties achieve permanent housing and financial stability through employment and attain stability and enhanced self-esteem through ongoing mentoring friendships. Our goal is to exemplify Christ’s love and to promote physical, emotional, social and spiritual wholeness. 

The Bridge of Hope program promotes holistic change while fostering independence and not dependence for the women served. This program bridges the gap for single mothers who work hard but who’s income is too little to survive and yet too much to qualify for assistance.

Why “House A Family” Is Crucial

When a single mother is homeless every aspect of life becomes complicated. How will she feed her   family? Where will they sleep each night? Will they be safe? If she finds a job, how will she get there? Where will the children go to daycare or school? How will they all get ready for the day?

The first step toward ending and preventing homelessness for homeless single mothers and their children is to “house a family”. When the family has the security and stability of a home, they have the foundation needed to rebuild their lives. 

Each Mom in our program receives first months rent and the security deposit to move into a home. They then receive rental assistance on a decreasing basis over a 9 month period to encourage independence and not dependence. While having the peace of mind of stable housing, they can begin focusing on their long term goals of entering a career that will support them financially. They focus on maintaining and being accountable to a budget they set and developing a  supportive network of friendships.

Choose to provide rental assistance for a homeless single mother and her children through a monthly or one time donation. As you receive your monthly updates on the family you choose, you will see how your support is building a foundation for that family. You will be making it possible for a single mom to rebuild her life and provide a home for her family forever.
