House A Single Mother & Her Children Today
Bridge of Hope Harrisburg Area opens doors to permanent, sustainable housing for single mothers and their children experiencing homelessness through our long-term program addressing all areas of life including education, employment, financial literacy, and parenting.
100% of the families we serve have been affected by COVID-19. They have all either lost their jobs or have had their working hours reduced to below life-sustaining wages. In April, and with the need for May, Bridge of Hope Harrisburg Area will provide $6,791 in rental assistance alone to keep our families housed through this crisis. This sum far exceeds our budgeted expectations prior to the pandemic. Without financial support, these families will face homelessness. Any donation given is crucial to supporting these single mothers and their children today. Thank you for housing these families as we all pull together to support each other during these difficult times.
