Drawbridge provides a stable, safe and creative environment and trusting relationships for homeless kids. My teenage daughter has been a volunteer at Drawbridge for almost 2 years and throughout these many months I have been impressed over and over again with the way Drawbridge changes lives for the better. By focusing on children, Drawbridge is helping to improve all of our futures.
