The Bridge operates a phase 2 transitional home that houses one woman and her children.  This is not  a multi-bed facility, homeless shelter, or emergency shelter.  Our house includes commitment to the whole program and operates like a regular residence with the exception of high accountability through exterior video monitoring and limited access to visitors.  In order to apply for phase 2 transitional housing a woman must do the following:

  • Complete the application process.
  • Provide 3 letters of reference from reputable community members.
  • Go through an interview process.
  • Commit to follow all program regulations

True discipleship takes time.  A more exhaustive list of requirements is given upon beginning residency, but these are a few:

  • Residents will work with a mentor to write an individualized discipleship plan.
  • Residents will take skills classes according to their greatest needs.
  • Ally team members will contact the resident at least once a week.

There will also be precautions taken to make sure the Bridge house is a safe environment.

  • The house will be monitored by an outside surveillance camera.
  • The resident will be randomly drug tested on a regular basis.
  • Visitors will only be allowed during pre-set visitation hours.
  • Frequent, random “walk-thrus” will be conducted in the house.

For many women who are recovering from a crisis or trying to overcome poverty, saving money is an impossible task. We feel that creating a situation where a woman can learn, grow, and save is a huge part of her continued success.

The resident will pay between 10-30% of her income in rent.

If she completes the Bridge program, that money will be given back to her in two installments to go toward deposits or a down payment on future housing. If she does not complete the program, she will forfeit the rent she has paid up to that point. Due to the program length being two years availability is limited.
