When Jessica came to Bridges Community Services, she was homeless after her second stay at A Better Way. She had two children and one on the way.

Thanks to United Way of Delaware County and donor support, Jessica’s Case Manager helped her pay for her GED. After giving birth, she enrolled at Ivy Tech, where she took classes to earn her licensed practical nurse (LPN) license. While at school, Bridges helped Jessica pay for childcare and made sure her kids were doing well in school.

After obtaining her LPN license, Jessica got a job at Open Door Health Clinic, and eventually at a doctor’s office. She said, “Because Bridges gave me the hand up and support when I really needed it. I now am married, living in Washington DC, have another child, and am working at a hospital.” 

Your support made it possible for Jessica to turn her life around and achieve her dreams—thank you! Men and women in our community need access to organizations like Bridges in order to transition from homeless to financially thriving. Will you support these individuals and make an impact today?
