THE PIKE STREET BRIDGE
The program goal of the Pike Street Bridge is to provide women with safe, transitional housing, helping them become more stable, enabling them to attain sustainable housing upon exiting the program. The Pike Street Bridge transitional housing program provides housing and mentoring services for women who have successfully reestablished themselves by overcoming the issues that led to their homelessness and have secured employment.
They will commit to live by an agreed upon covenant that will establish expectations for the residents as well as the advisory boards commitments to the women. The house is at 500 W. Pike St. Women accepted into the program must be drug and alcohol free and have some source of sustainable income, be able to live independently, and have the ability and resources to secure stabilized housing within a reasonable timeframe.
Part of the mentoring will include financial planning and counseling as well as the establishment of a savings account. It will also include a discipleship and accountability plan. Each woman will have responsibilities within the house and mentors will be encouraged to make frequent visits to assess progress and address any issues that may arise.
