Lifebridge is working to offer men and women the opportunities they need to end their homelessness.
Research shows that two factors are responsible for this problem: a lack of affordable housing and the persistence of poverty in our community.
We believe that the way to solve this crisis one person at a time is to provide housing with supportive services, to encourage personal and income development, and stability in physical and mental health.

A Time for Giving
In an outpouring of generosity, a local family from Marblehead has offered to show their support of our mission by matching every dollar donated to Lifebridge, up to $40,000, from now until the end of the year. This means that a $50 gift really means $100 to Lifebridge, or a $250 gift means $500 to help end homelessness. We need your help to reach our goal of $40,000 by year’s end so that Lifebridge can receive an additional $40,000 through this matching gift opportunity. Please consider giving a gift this holiday season that is appropriate to your means.
or by mailing a check to P.O. Box 810, Salem, MA 01970
Thank you for your consideration!
Reading Resident Puts Classroom Skills into Practice
Salem State University sociology student Hannah Colbert was obviously paying attention this spring in Professor Yvonne Vissing’s sociology 365 class (grant writing and evaluation research in the social sciences). The grant application the Reading resident wrote as part of her class—and in collaboration with Jason Etheridge, director of development at Lifebridge in downtown Salem—was submitted to New England BioLabs Inc., and funded.
The grant application asked for $2,000 to develop a garden space, called the Seeds of Hope Garden, at the local shelter for homeless men and women and those in transition. In addition to creating a green space, the garden will provide work opportunities for shelter clients and nutritious produce for its meals service.
