Mission: Bridgeway (the organization) is a nonprofit corporation organized for the purpose of providing temporary shelter to unwed pregnant teenagers in order to provide a conducive environment in which they can complete their education, obtain meaningful employment, and make informed decisions about their future. The organization is in the process of closing down. The organization is using the sale of the shelter residence to pay outstanding expenses and liabilities. All remaining cash and assets will be distributed to other exempt organizations that have a similar mission to bridgeway.
Programs: Residential and shelter - provides housing, education and support to pregnant teenagers.
Bridgeway is a home for pregnant teens. With a very small staff, this non-profit manages to support pregnant teens through and after their pregnancies. The girls have a place to live, provided they abide by the house rules, which include continuing their education and working to support themselves as well as their children, if they choose to keep their babies. It is a wonderful, rewarding place to volunteer, in part because you meet the girls (and the babies)! The staff is consistently supportive of and grateful for volunteers, no matter how small a role you may play. They have one major fundraiser per year and the opportunity to volunteer at it is not to be missed! Aside from supporting a great cause, Bridgeway is a very rewarding place to volunteer.
