Bridge of Hope is neighboring to end family homelessness. Over 582 women, children and Neighboring Volunteers were involved in the program this past year. In Bridge of Hope, lives change, families are strengthened and hope begins. Our annual Gala Luncheon will be held on Friday, May 8, 2020 at Palm Court, DoubleTree Resort, Lancaster, PA. It will feature Shannan Martin, best-selling author of The Ministry of Ordinary Places: Waking Up to God’s Goodness Around You and Falling Free: Rescued from the Life I Always Wanted. Shannan is a speaker and writer who found her voice in the country and her story in the city.  She lives with her jail-chaplain husband, Cory, and their kids as grateful neighbors in Goshen, Indiana. Shannan will inspire you to love your neighbor right where God has placed you.
