Bridges to Housing, Inc. was established in 2008 as a non-profit corporation in response to the many challenges of homelessness in our community. Our focus is on a key element of proven solutions: moving families from transitional or otherwise temporary shelters into stable housing. Our mission is to provide assistance for homeless families in obtaining safe, decent and affordable housing in Yuba and Sutter Counties, partnering with a wide variety of community resources.
Our role is to evaluate the client's needs, help find solutions to their particular housing problems, assist with negotiating leases with landlords, and providing qualified applicants with part of the lease deposit.
Funded entirely by grants and donations, and fueled by the hard work and dedication of our volunteers and staff, we have since 2013 successfully placed hundreds of Yuba-Sutter families in traditional apartments or houses.
That housing is then the door to other forms of support and opportunity.
Hands of Hope, in addition to generously offering us office space in their Yuba City facility, has helped many of our clients in their mentoring program. We also partner with The Salvation Army and other service agencies to provide broader-based assistance to our clients. Our other community partners include California Rural Legal Assistance, Casa de Esperanza, R.E.S.T., St. Andrews Presbyterian Church, St. Vincent de Paul, Sutter County Social Services, Yuba-Sutter Behavioral Health, Yuba-Sutter Homeless Consortium, and the Yuba-Sutter Stand Down,
