Lifebridge offers a suite of essential services that target the needs of homeless and disadvantaged adults. Our programs focus on 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 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.

Lifebridge's Outreach Worker and Medical Support Services are funded in part by the City of Salem Department of Planning & Community Development, U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development.

Lifebridge does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, gender or gender identity, age, religion, familial status, sexual orientation, disability, ancestry, marital status, source of income, veteran/military status and genetic information. 

​​Our experience has shown shelters alone do not solve the problem of homelessness. It is actually through all of the services we provide—housing, supportive services, case management, and work experience that the chronically homeless will begin to truly thrive.
