Life circumstances should not be life sentences.
Some kids are dealt an unlucky hand, but that should not define them. Show a teenager there is more to life than abuse, pain, hunger, and suffering. Show him or her there is hope.
Become a Bridge Host Home.
A host parent's role is to:
- provide a safe, stable, temporary home environment for youth, ages 11-17, in need of respite from their current living situation. Placements will typically be for 21 days.
- work with the Bridge, the youth, and his or her family to facilitate a safe transition to a more permanent home.
Host parents will receive:
- a modest daily stipend.
- ongoing training and support.
- the gratification of knowing YOU made a different in someone's life.
