Who We Serve

Bridges to Hope serves women and men released from incarceration during the previous twelve months.  We define incarceration as “institutionalized for a criminal offense for 60 days or longer.”  Applicants must be able to provide their prison ID number so their status can be verified.

If the applicant has been in county jail or has been sentenced through drug court, Veteran’s court or other alternative court proceeding, they must provide some form of discharge papers at the time of shopping.

Men and women may visit the Warehouse to shop for clothing, personal hygiene items, furniture and household items twice within an 18 month period.
