The Bridge outreach program serves men who are homeless, living either in sheltered circumstances or under unstable conditions. Program leaders provide Godly counsel while guiding participants through the steps and processes that will help them achieve stability and independence. Bible study and spiritual mentoring is combined with individualized practical assistance in setting personal goals and being held accountable for achieving them. Men work on spiritual, financial, interpersonal, and work-related goals all aimed at growing in maturity and responsibility.
THE LYNAY COMMUNITY RESOURCE CENTER
The Lynay Community Resource Center is a multipurpose facility housing a circle of services addressing poverty issues in Morgan County Indiana as well as some community ministry space. It is a collaborative effort of churches and individuals who, inspired by the Morgan County Bridges Out of Poverty initiative, are striving to facilitate a more sustainable community.
Current programming includes bi-weekly high school equivalency exam prep classes, men’s outreach coaching sessions, recovery group meetings, job and career exploration opportunities. Production facilities for the Maggie Bag Project are also located in the Lynay Center.
The Lynay Center and the Magdalene House are both located in the same building, with separate entrances and facilities.
THE MAGDALENE HOUSE
The Magdalene House is a shelter for homeless single women who do not meet the criteria for admission into other area shelters. It provides shelter and supportive services for up to 16 women. Additional shelter is also provided at the Pike Street Bridge for women who have made significant progress on their individualized stability plans.
Our faith-based program provides much more than food and shelter as women prepare and work through an individualized stability plan. Depending upon the individual need programming includes educational opportunities, specific job readiness skills, health & wellness, transportation resources, mental health services, addiction recovery programming, spiritual guidance and other support services – all designed to assure that women are stepping out on firm ground when they leave.
