The Bridge Home is devoted to bridging the gap between homelessness and housing by providing shelter, support, and inspiring a pathway forward to individuals and families experiencing or on the verge of homelessness. We are committed to ending the misconceptions and stigma surrounding homelessness by educating our community about the growing housing crisis in the Story County and Two Rivers region.  In the last year alone, we have proudly served over 600 men, women, and children with more than 4,000 meals and 10,000 nights of shelter

Homelessness does not discriminate.  We are not just dedicated to providing immediate relief. Instead, we deliver the tools,
resources, and education to empower and guide individuals and families facing the challenges of homelessness towards
long-term solutions –– free from judgment. We offer a continuum of care from preventative services to housing programs. Some of the programs we facilitate are:

                           **Homelessness Prevention                      **Emergency Shelter                                  **Housing Programs

Your kindness and contributions will help curb the growing housing crisis in Story County and Two Rivers Region.  Thank you for your continued support of The Bridge Home!
