Lifebridge is working to offer men and women the opportunities they need to
end their homelessness.
Research shows that two factors are
responsible for this problem: 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
Shop, Save, & Support
at the Lifebridge Thrift Shop
Located at 47 Canal Street in Salem.
Please come and check out the amazing furniture, clothing, and household items that we have to offer.

Reading Resident Puts Classroom Skills into Practice
Salem State University sociology student Hannah Colbert was obviously paying attention this spring in Professor Yvonne Vissing’s sociology 365 class (grant writing and evaluation research in the social sciences). The grant application the Reading resident wrote as part of her class—and in collaboration with Jason Etheridge, director of development at Lifebridge in downtown Salem—was submitted to New England BioLabs Inc., and funded.
The grant application asked for $2,000 to develop a garden space, called the Seeds of Hope Garden, at the local shelter for homeless men and women and those in transition. In addition to creating a green space, the garden will provide work opportunities for shelter clients and nutritious produce for its meals service.

Joseph Dunn, Director of the Salem State University Wellness Center presented a $500 donation to Lifebridge. This donation was raised by the 17th Annual North Shore Wellness Fair 5K Road Race and Fun Walk hosted by Salem State University. On April 28th, 2013 walkers and runners gathered at the O’Keefe Center to participate in this race in order to promote a healthy lifestyle and to raise money for Lifebridge, the Northeast Animal Shelter and the Wellness Center.
