Bridge House ends homelessness one person at a time. We offer adults experiencing homelessness a continuum of programming called the Bridge of Opportunity spanning from low barrier basic needs services to robust programs with access to paid work and housing.
Bridge House was established as a day shelter in 1996 when the local business and faith communities identified a need for services for individuals experiencing homelessness. Since then, Bridge House has transformed by strategically evolving and developing innovative, lasting solutions to address homelessness for our clients and community.
In 2012, Bridge House launched our award-winning Ready to Work Program, Colorado’s only “work-first”, transitional employment program for adults experiencing homelessness grounded in social enterprise. In 2013, Bridge House opened Community Table Kitchen our triple-bottom line food service social enterprise. In 2015, Bridge House opened the Ready to Work House to provide housing for 44 individuals in the program. In 2018, we opened our second Ready to Work site in Aurora, CO with capacity for 50 individuals. We are the only organization in Metro Denver that offers a comprehensive, employment-based solution to address homelessness.
In 2017, Bridge House established Path to Home, a 24 hour/7 day program structured to support adults experiencing homelessness, with not only basic needs services such as meals and shelter but with customized intensive housing-focused, navigation case management.
Bridge House is now a leader in Metro-Denver at the forefront of creating effective, efficient and data-driven solutions to address homelessness in the region.
