Review for BRIDGES OF HOPE, Brainerd, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

Role:  Board Member & I helped with the original concept development and with the hiring of the first staff person. I served on the original Board and continue to be involved with the organization, currently as a Board member.
