November is National Homelessness Awareness Month!

Bridges of Hope has a legacy of building bridges between residents, organizations, and services in the Brainerd Lakes Area, working towards a gap-free social safety net. Give Compassion to Our Community in support of The Bridge on 7th Overnight Shelter on Give to the Max Day.

The Bridge on 7th is a low-barrier warming shelter providing a safe place to sleep for individuals 18+ who are experiencing homelessness in the Brainerd Lakes Area. Bridges of Hope, in partnership with law enforcement, Crow Wing County, nonprofit organizations, church partners, and community members recognized the need for a safe place for homeless adults to sleep in our community. This group came together to address homelessness by creating The Bridge on 7th.

In the 2022 – 2023 winter season, The Bridge on 7th served 177 unduplicated adults, totaling 3,500 stays. We could not have accomplished this without your generous giving. 

Your donation on Give to the Max Day makes a difference for our neighbors in need. A donation of: 

a.    $30 – provides a supervised night of safe, warm sleep for a guest in need

b.    $50 – helps us provide personal necessities and warm clothing to guests

c.    $100 – stocks The Bridge up coffee and snacks for a week 

d.    $150 – keeps the laundry at the shelter clean for a week 

e.    $250 – provides just over a one week stay for someone in transition 

We need your help to address the needs of our community. Donate today!
