Your active support and compassion for our working poor neighbors threatened with homelessness, gives them and their children a new chance to achieve housing stability. As the Dalai Lama XIV said “It is not enough to show compassion. You must act.” With your contribution, you have empowered The Bridge Fund of New York to take effective action.
Private funding from loyal donors enables our program to react quickly and creatively to resolve clients’ housing crises. Our financial assistance to clients—usually interest-free loans or grants—has been supplemented by budget counseling and expert referrals to other agencies in the case of special needs. We continue to explore new forms of assistance. As a result, 9 out of 10 clients we manage to stabilize in their housing are still in their homes after one year.
Thank you again for your compassion for all our hard-working clients.
