Give to the Max Day 2022!

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.

In 2021, 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 (ages 18+) to sleep in our community. The group came together to address homelessness by creating a low-barrier overnight shelter, now known as The Bridge, that offers a safe place for individuals to stay for the night.

We were able to serve over the course of 147 nights, 78 unique individuals experiencing homelessness and offered in total 942 nights of shelter from the cold Minnesota winter December 2021 to April 2022. We could not have accomplished this without your generous giving.

November 17th, Give to the Max Day, we need support to raise funds for “The Bridge”, Brainerd Lakes Area Overnight Shelter as a part of our “100K to a Warmer Stay” campaign.
