Enrich the Bridge

The Bridge at Arbor Circle is a safe shelter program for youth who are facing homelessness or considering running away. In the middle of a crisis, the Bridge provides shelter, counseling, case management, group support, youth activities and connections to other needed services. The Bridge assists youth with meeting their basic needs, setting goals, building new life skills, and establishing connections with peers and mentors who can support them. 

Serving an average of 250 youth a year and operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, The Bridge is a facility that is constantly in use, and was in desperate need of upgrades. After almost two years of visioning and fundraising, and more than six months of planning, getting the proper permits and construction, we are THRILLED that our Enrich the Bridge remodel project is complete! This project has improved the functionality of our existing space and made the Bridge an even more welcoming space for the youth we serve each year.

Come help us celebrate! You are invited to join us for a tour of the renovated facility at our ribbon cutting event with the Grand Rapids Chamber of Commerce.
