When God leads, people respond.
Over and again, that’s the story of Bridge of Hope.
On March 2, 1987, 37 Christians gathered in a church basement in Coatesville, PA, to listen to Sandy Lewis and Linda Witmer share their vision for how churches could respond to women and children facing homelessness. The group listened as three women who were homeless shared their personal stories. The group represented a cross-section of churches but was united by a deep sense of Christ’s call to compassion for families facing homelessness. As they explored ways churches could make a real and lasting difference, God’s Spirit prompted 10 women and men to step forward.
