BRIDGES OF HOPE
You help us build bridges of support for stronger families and communities.
Bridges of Hope serves children and families in Crow Wing County and the surrounding communities. We focus on assisting families in crisis–whatever the crisis may be. Our staff specializes in connecting families 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.
Friends, Donors, Partners and Stakeholders -
Last week, our Board announced the departure of Bernadette Foh. Bernadette served as Executive Director beginning in September 2019; her contributions to Bridges of Hope are numerous and helped us move forward especially during the challenging Spring months of this year.
The Board is in the process of appointing an interim director and will begin the search for a permanent full-time director soon.
Bridges of Hope is committed to its vision of building bridges of support to create stronger families and communities. Support of Bridges of Hope is more critical than ever as we work each day to serve the growing needs of our neighbors due to COVID 19 and its impacts including job loss, food insecurity and online learning. The road to recovery is long, and there are many needs to be met in our community as we look ahead. Partners, friends and volunteers who support our work are important to us and we count on all of you to join in to get the work done.
