The Bridge has provided me with an exceptional experience. Being a part of the team here allows me to see first hand the heartfelt efforts of caring people. In a world filled with turmoil and hardships, the Bridge gives a safe haven. I have listened to our residents speak of the despair and hardships they have endured and feel the up most respect for their courage to overcome and survive. The entire team at the Bridge has been a lifeline for these survivors and aides in their continued success. I am honored to have met and worked along side them.
Estoy muy orgullosa de ser voluntaria del 'Bridge'. A comparación de otros sitios de ayuda a la comunidad, este refugio tiene bien entendido la filosofía de asistencia al prójimo. Puedo decir con certeza que el personal es extraordinario y siempre ve por el bienestar del cliente. Es un gran honor poder ser parte de un sanctuario (por decir), donde la meta principal es fortalecer el aura emocional, sentimental y espiritual del individuo.
Hi! I interned with the development manager at the Bridge Over Troubled Waters the spring semester of 2017. This experience opened my eyes to how much passion and work the bridge puts into helping survivors, in and out of their shelter, to rebuild their lives. This experience was truly a blessing, it helped me realize that I want my future career to be in social work. I learned that the logo for The Bridge Over Troubled Waters symbolized people crossing a bridge from the darkest parts of their lives to the light of their future. Working with the development manager and helping her plan their annual fundraiser I learned how fundamentally important volunteers and fundraisers are to the the bridge and have been working on getting more involved volunteering there now that my mentorship is over. I encourage caring and hard working people to get involved with the bridge! There are so many different volunteer opportunities and ways to help. Make a difference. Help these survivors get to the light.
I would like to share my experience as a volunteer at the bridge over troubled waters. While being there I saw women and families in need of shelter. Not only did the bridge assist with providing a shelter to the homeless, but they also provided food, moral support, furniture, transportation etc. The staff is amazing,genuine, kind. Always available when needed, very helpful and comforting. A place I would feel comfortable in having anyone sheltered in.
