Project Plan

Enhanced Services


To better address the needs of this most vulnerable population, we plan to build the Bridge of Hope Center for Women and Children. This new facility will allow us to increase:


  • Housing for an additional 146 women and children
  • Classrooms
  • Counseling areas
  • Culinary arts job skills training center
  • Rooftop recreational area for children

Once construction of the Bridge of Hope Center for Women and Children is complete, the Bay Area Rescue Mission will be able to provide the following life-saving services to an additional 146 women and children in need:

Services Current Capacity Future Capacity
Emergency Shelter 32 beds 50 beds
Long-Term Recovery Programs 52 beds 146 beds
Transitional Housing 66 beds 100 beds

 

With these additional facilities and services, we will better address the needs of this most vulnerable population:

♦ Provide a safe, loving and nurturing environment for women and children to rebuild their lives
♦ Help break the perpetual cycle of homelessness through our proven system to restore the whole person
♦ Restore dignity and self-worth to our clients through physical, mental, spiritual, educational, job and life-skills training that will allow them to break free and become self-sufficient and productive members of society
