Bridge of Hope Inc
November 3, 2010
As a six-year board member, I have been impressed with Bridge of Hope's steadfast commitment to several key components of effective work: 1) seeing board work as a learning community, constantly searching for the best ways to work alongside real human people, not a target group; 2) constanting keeping the women & their children as the main focus of our energies, not the perpetuation of our organization; and, 3) seeing the strengths that a woman & her family bring to the task of ending their cycle of homelessness & its attendant issues.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
effectively changing when times change.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
continue to work on diversifying the religious affiliations of our board.
Board Member & I helped start a local affiliate of Bridge of Hope in my home county (Burlington Co., NJ).
