The Bridge’s service area is southeast Harris County, Texas, a population of approximately 526,000, including: the cities of Pasadena; South Houston; La Porte; Jacinto City; Channelview; Deer Park; and Galena Park; and the southeast portion of Houston. Through vision, passion and diligence during the past 33 years,
The Bridge has become one of the largest family crisis centers in Texas, annually serving approximately 20,000 people through residential/non-residential services and community outreach and prevention/education programs.
The Bridge exists to assist women, children and men in crisis’, particularly those who have been affected by domestic violence, sexual assault or homeless situations.
Violence issues are rampant across the United States and throughout all ethnic, educational and socioeconomic lines. Violence and abusive situations are not only physically and emotionally harmful, but they can also impact financial stability.
In short, perhaps the most significant reason we exist, beyond saving the lives of women and children, is that the nature of these crimes makes it difficult for individuals and families to rebuild their lives without support. The Bridge provides access to critical services for those in crisis situations. The Bridge is a support system-it’s a place to be heard, it’s a way to discover options, and it offers the assistance to realize and attain personal goals.
