Bridges has always been able to provide tutoring for our youth in shelter, rapid re-housing, and beyond. One-on-one pairs in bright bridges will be an opportunity for our youth to receive not only homework assistance but will allow volunteers to assist and empower our youth. This brings youth programming into their own homes and creates a consistent role model where there may not be one. This program will assist students to increase their view and ability to perform in school and social settings, create environments that will build an internal sense of overall positive self-worth and self-efficacy, and promote students to establish positive and healthy bonds with people and institutions. This program is about creating connections that will last, not connections that are convenient.​

Community Outreach/EVENTS

Help Bridges to Independence connect with the community by planning and promoting upcoming activities, organizing drives for food or other items, and representing Bridges at gatherings around town. Are you part of a church, business, or other community organization? It’s easy to set up a drive or a fundraising activity to benefit Bridges, and we’re happy to help!

Bridges events are a great opportunity for you to bring your friends and family to volunteer! Events include the Home Run for the Homeless, Arlington Turkey Trot, Bridges’ Black and Gold Bash, and our annual SAFE AT HOME Kickball Tournament. Lots of volunteers are needed to make these events a success!

Time for a Break?

Monthly Bingo Night
"Sometimes girls just want to have fun – and Bingo Nite fills the bill.  Once a month, everybody can join in for good times, games, and prizes galore. Other activities, such as our regular sewing classes, may be a little more structured, but they give everybody a social break along with a new skill. Who knows? Some entrepreneurial spirit may “sew up” a money-making venture."
