NOW SERVING FAMILIES IN CUMBERLAND, DAUPHIN & YORK COUNTIES!


At Bridge of Hope Harrisburg Area, we’ve been steadily growing the number of families we serve along with our staff capacity over the last several years with your generous help. It’s been our commitment to reach more single mothers and children experiencing homelessness with sustainable, permanent housing in Dauphin and Cumberland counties and we can assure you our commitment remains unchanged and steady. Therefore, we are excited to announce that Bridge of Hope Harrisburg Area has expanded our service area to include York County. We now serve single mothers and children experiencing homelessness in Cumberland, Dauphin and York counties!

HOUSE A FAMILY

 

Single moms with children experiencing homelessness are housed in safe, permanent housing within 60 days from when they join our program. We match each family with 6 to 8 Neighboring Volunteers from local Christian Faith Communities who offer holistic support to the family as mom works to reach the goals she creates with our Case Manager. With support and hard work, families attain three main outcomes at graduation from our program: 

Safe & Sustainable Housing | Strong & Resilient Families | Supportive Relationships

There are many avenues you can take to support a single mother and her children today. Opportunities include providing basic needs, financial support, service of time, and Neighboring Volunteer opportunities.

Told she earned too much to qualify for public assistance, she and her son had been living out of their car for months when someone mentioned Bridge of Hope.

Organizations like Bridge of Hope become the only means that many homeless people have to achieve dignity and faith. Bridge of Hope makes homeless strangers into friends in the name of Christ.
