Homeless mothers and their children are among the most vulnerable persons in our communities today. Their loneliness and despair stirs the desire of many to give these families a chance at a stable and secure life. But caring people often admit to feeling ill-equipped to reach out in helpful ways to those who are homeless, many of whom also struggle with problems of abuse, joblessness, or addiction.
To provide a way for those caring individuals to reach out and help fight this despair on a local level, Bridge of Hope Harrisonburg-Rockingham (BOHHR) was founded. We are a faith based non-profit organization started locally by a multi-denominational group of Christians and a Bridge of Hope National affiliate—one of 16 in eight states and the only one in Virginia. Our unique model is built on a three-way partnership matching individuals in need with those wishing to help.
