Bridges of Hope is here to assist families who are stressed. They are a phone call away when you are in crisis. Their compassion is expressed by their staff and supporters. As a donor, I know my dollars are being used effectively to meet the needs of our community. In my role as a service provider, I rely on Bridges to have the latest information on what services are available. I appreciate being asked to be an advisor because I know that Bridges is always looking for ways to improve the work they do.

I have watched a young mom go from recieving Crisis Nursery Services through Bridges of Hope, to volunteering for them, and finally growing strong enough to work for a local service agency. Bridges helped her when she was in need and now she is giving back to the community.

Bridges of Hope is a faith based non-profit in the Brainerd lakes area. I have been involved with Bridges of Hope since the idea stage. What drew me to Bridges was the concept of joining (Bridging) the faith community with the service community. Pastors were struggling with knowing how to assist members of their congregation when they came to them with needs for mental health counseling, parenting support, financial difficulties, etc. These types of services are plentiful in our area but families struggle to access them. Bridges of Hope is that lifeline for families. We come along side them and connect them with the supports they need to be healthy and thrive as a family or individual.

I've experienced the results of this organization in many ways. I'm a supervisor for children and family services at the county and we contract with Bridges to do preventative work in several program areas. The work that Bridges does, prevents many families from needing to be more formally involved with county services such as child protection or mental health. This is a great asset for families as it allows them to determine their own destiny.

If I had to make changes to Bridges of Hope I would expand the services. There are so many needs throughout the area that if we had enough resources to hire more staff, etc. we could reach more people and continue to be a critical part of the safety net in our community.

Bridges of Hope is an excellent organization serving the Brainerd Lakes Area . BoH was developed by local people who wanted to connect people in need to the full array of resources that could help. BoH has the flexibility to work with a variety of resources in the community from public agencies, non-profits and area churches. This flexibility and coordination has made a tremendous impact in coordinating area resources for people in their time of greatest need.

I have had the pleasure to not only work for this organization but also volunteer. Most importantly I am a donor. This is an organization that does amazing work in our community and I feel honored to support such "grassroots efforts" in our local community!

I believe that this organization if given the capacity could enhance their work with area churches and children and families. Because they were created locally ever dollar given stays here in the Brainerd Lakes Area.

Bridges of hope is a wonderful organization! It is the aptly named "bridge" to services in the Brainerd Lakes Area. A simple call to Bridges of Hope can put into motion a variety of supports to aide a person through any domestic crisis. The counselors are respectful and caring, and will work with clients to formulate a plan that maintains dignity.

I have had the privilege of working with some of the families they serve, and they have been completely satisfied with the services they receive!

Expand its ability to supplement mental health care throughout the duration of a time-limited crisis, such as divorce, catastrophe, or child's illness. Increase awareness of programs to middle class populations.

Bridges of Hope is a very valuable organization in our community! I am a social worker in the community and work with children and families. They have provided many resources such as gas cards, rent deposits, utility help, clothing, housing resources and much more. One of the most valuable resources they provide is setting up counseling services for families. Many therapists in the community are booked a month in advance. Bridges is able to reserve appointments so families can get in sooner! I love this and so do the families!
