Bridge Point's Hope Card Program

Bridge Point strives to help families of all shapes and sizes meet their everyday needs.  Our goal is to help you "stretch" your income and budget by providing needed resources, at no cost, that free up your income for other family needs.

The HOPE RESOURCE CENTER and Bridge Point CONNECTION POINT MOBILE SERVICES exist to provide needed resources to individuals and families in our community.

Some of the resources include;

PERSONAL CARE ITEMS (tooth brushes, soap, deodorant, diaper, shampoo & more)
HOUSEHOLD ITEMS (laundry soap, toilet paper, dish soap & more)
SPECIAL RESOURCES (used & sometimes new appliances, furniture, monthly specials and more)

These resources are not made available to the General Public.
They are reserved for HOPE FAMILIES. 

Following review of your application, you will be notified about whether you meet the initial qualifications for a HOPE CARD and an appointment will be made to further discuss your family's needs.
