EVERY DAY A TEEN
IN OUR COMMUNITY
HAS NO PLACE TO STAY
OR FOOD TO EAT.
WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
The purpose of Bamboo Bridge is to provide a stable, safe, and structured home for homeless young adults, 18-21, who are enrolled in school, pursuing a trade or job. We are here to help these residents achieve their goals in life and become successful members of our community. We are here to show the community that investing in young adults will create a better community for all of us.
We chose BAMBOO because it is strong, but flexible with incredible roots. We want to plant seeds in these young adults and give them the basic life skills and services they need to begin to grow strong roots. Bamboo takes a long time once planted to sprout which represents the patience, maturity, confidence, and independence we want them to gain to be successful adults.
We chose the word BRIDGE because we hope to bridge the gap between childhood and adulthood and make it easier for these young adults to navigate through life.
