A Church-Based Approach to Ending Family Homelessness

Welcome to Bridge of Hope Berks County

An old woman walked along a beach littered with thousands of starfish, dying after a storm.  A young woman was picking them up and flinging them back into the ocean.  ”Why do you bother?” the old woman scoffed.  ”Surely you cannot expect to save enough to make a difference.”  The young woman picked up another starfish and sent it spinning back into the water.  ”I made a difference to that one….”

At Bridge of Hope Berks County, we believe that individuals, working together, can make a life-changing difference for one single mother and her children.  That’s how we seek to make a difference — one church, and one family, at a time.
