​​Here's Real Hope for Victory

While serving a long term sentence in a regional jail, Bridge Ministry founder, William Washington, was apprehended by the love of God and found the grace and strength to begin a new life. After overcoming a life of addictive behavior, he began reaching out to those in jail through a community  prayer meeting. Later, he and his wife opened their home to families in their neighborhood and to troubled men who needed help overcoming their addictions.


Since 1996, The Bridge Ministry has been providing a second chance for men who are committed to breaking free from life controlling issues. The majority of men who successfully complete the 18-month program go on to live successful and productive lives.

The Bridge Ministry was featured on a local television station.

Administrative Office Building

For a long time, our Administrative Office has been located in the dormitory and even though we have made it work, it has presented several challenges.  It is difficult to have the female members of our staff in our dormitory and because of the small office space, we have been very limited with what we could do with our volunteers.  Now, PVCC, local businesses, and construction professionals will have an opportunity to use the building as a training project to teach our students.  Raising money to construct this building is not possible on our own.  In order to make this a reality, we need the help of our community; lending aid with skills, resources, and talents.  On the back of this letter you will see a detailed breakdown of the materials for this project so that we can train our students during the construction process and one day have a building that we can use not only for our staff and volunteers, but also to expand the opportunity of service to our community.  To help us with this project click HERE.
