Our Story

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 campus.

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

Hannah Colbert

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.
