A Widely Recognized Issue
You may have not noticed the large community of people experiencing homelessness in Salem, or maybe you’ve widely recognized the issue. If this is something you recognize, you know that working towards ending homelessness is important. LifeBridge is here to combat this.
We’re here for support, awareness, and recognition. Everyone needs to know they have someone there for them: friends, family, or peer support. This is where we come in.
Support & Awareness
Sometimes it can be tough for people to find others like them, in similar situations that they can relate to.
Lifebridge is here to connect people with programs and resources they need. Staying in a home, meeting with a group regularly, or participating in a program can make things a lot easier for people to feel supported.
