The Bridge provides housing to more than 1,300 people who have a behavioral health condition.
Our 24 buildings and nearly 500 scatter-site apartments offer three levels of residential services: Shelter, Transitional Housing, and Permanent Supportive Housing.
All residential clients receive person-centered rehabilitation, recovery and support services consistent with their needs, wants and aspirations. The goal is to support each individual in achieving a maximal level of independent functioning and participation in the community.
Bridge housing serves individuals with a variety of needs and includes units that prioritize those reentering the community from correctional facilities, young adults aging out of care, and homeless veterans. In addition, specialized services are offered for older adults housed in The Bridge’s residential programs to allow them to ‘age in place’ in the community.
Eligibility and Intake
The Bridge’s supportive housing programs focus on the needs of homeless and housing insecure single adults who are diagnosed with behavioral health disabilities. We do not have supportive housing programs designed for couples and families.
