I was helped by Bridge when I came to the U.S. as a Political asylee 8 years ago. This non-profit agency had impacted my life in a very special way and now I made a choice to pay it forward by co-sponsoring refugees through a local church where I am on staff. It's been such a wonderful experience partnering with Bridge and restore hope in the lives of so many uprooted people.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

helping refugees/asylees get on their own feet and become productive citizens.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

their employment program that gives refugees incentives to be willing to take whatever available job and their net-work with employers.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very dedicated!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

reach out to more refugees/asylees with more enrichement programs in place.

I work with Bridge sometimes, I've helped out with World Refugee Day, tutor, and they gave me temporary employment. They have the toughest job, dealing with too many clients and too few resources, and they do it with grace and skill. It is a pleasure to deal with them.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the many people I've met who can be in this country directly because of Bridge.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

people who would give you the shirt off their back.
