I worked at the Bridge to Hope for two years. I can say truthfully in the time I was there I saw nothing but caring and dedication from the small staff. Funds were spent carefully and always with an eye to helping clients of domestic violence and sexual assault get a fresh start. Men, women, and children were treated with compassion and respect. Each advocate has her own style but all are highly motivated to assist clients as they move past trauma to a new life. Please consider a generous donation. Gas cards are needed all year 'round, as are unrestricted funds for daily expenses.
