The Bridge Women's Group Home

Why does this home exist?

·      This group home exists for the purpose of helping those in recovery from addiction to develop a relationship with Jesus Christ.  

·      To build a spiritual community that will provide the opportunity, support, and education - both spiritual and vocational - to facilitate skills to succeed in life.

·      To help a person discover God’s plan for his life.

In the Bible, Jeremiah wrote these words, 

For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.  Jeremiah 29:11 (New Living Translation)
