Lifebridge's innovative services help men and women regain their lives and end their homelessness permanently. Not only does our model work; it has become a model for the nation.

Listen to the stories of the men and women who have overcome homelessness, and learn how our evidence-based, supportive services have helped them achieve independence.

Share their stories and their strength, and we can help get more homeless into homes. 

Our Services


Our Mission

​​Our experience has shown that shelters alone do not solve the problem of homelessness. It is actually through all of the services we provide—housing, close proximity of intense supportive services, case management, and work experience—that the chronically homeless will begin to truly thrive. If you have already made a gift, we are grateful for your generosity. If you have not, we hope you will join us now.

To make sure you receive the latest updates on volunteer opportunities, special events, and new developments, sign-up for our email list.

The Lifebridge Campus offers a suite of essential services that target the needs of homeless and disadvantaged adults. Our programmatic offerings are designed to promote education, employment, and self-sufficiency.

​​Lifebridge’s mission is to end the crisis of homelessness. Research shows that two factors are responsible for the problem of homelessness: a lack of affordable housing and the persistence of poverty in our community. We believe that the way to solve this crisis, one person at a time, is to provide housing with supportive services, to encourage personal and income development, and stability in physical and mental health. To achieve our ambitious goals, we deliver a suite of essential services on our Seeds of Hope Campus.
