BOH Shelter Webpage2.jpg

From November 1st-8th Bridges of Hope is hosting a SLEEP OUT in the Bethlehem Lutheran churchyard. Teams of community members will be sleeping outside with just a tarp, some cardboard, and a sleeping bag to raise awareness and funds for our community-led warming shelter project.

To reach our funding goal for the shelter, we must raise $70k in 7 days. We are confident that with your help we can do just that!

 

Even better, when you donate, your gift will be matched dollar for dollar thanks to Crow Wing Power Community Trust, Hallett Charitable Trusts, Initiative Foundation, and an anonymous donor (up to $70,000)!​

Make a gift today and help us:

  • Secure a location

  • Make necessary improvements

  • Train our staff

  • Purchase furniture and supplies

Bridges of Hope is working with nonprofits, churches, law enforcement, government agencies, and community members to open an overnight warming shelter. The shelter will be a simple, safe, supervised place to get a warm night's sleep.

You help us build bridges of support for stronger families and communities.

Bridges of Hope serves individuals and families in Crow Wing County and the surrounding communities. We focus on assisting households in crisis–whatever the crisis may be. Our staff specializes in connecting those in crisis with local resources by drawing on both traditional human services and non-traditional supports. We are the safety net between communities and county resources. We work to have an expert knowledge of ALL of our area resources and how to easily access them.

November is National Homelessness Awareness Month
