Our Stories

Thank you for an amazing journey –

Else, Bridge House Alum

I had only heard about organizations that served our community but had not experienced anything like it. I had no money, it didn’t matter. Bridge House offered unconditional love and acceptance and understood the challenges of early recovery. There is an AA expression that asks, “what do I have to change?” to which the answer is “EVERYTHING”. That takes a lot of work, and a lot of support and a lot of time.

A New Hope

Derrick, Bridge House Alum

“ I am currently in college for Business Management, I am about to be a father, and I was just promoted to Assistant Floor Manager. I am indebted to Bridge House for giving me a chance to change my life. ”

A Life Changing Experience

Nancy, Grace House Resident

I became a prisoner to alcohol and my life fell to pieces. I was hopeless, tired, confused, angry, sick and very unhealthy. My parents took over my role as parent to my children. I drank all day, every day until I passed out. My family no longer talked to me.
