Program Overview

Men 18 and over that are enrolled in The Bridge Ministry participate in classes five days per week where they learn how to communicate in a positive way, work with others, lead their families, manage their finances, and become a productive member of their communities. Students also have the opportunity to study for and earn their GED while in the program.

Mission Statement

The Bridge Ministry, Inc. began operating as a 501(c)(3) organization in December 1996. The Bridge works in Virginia to transform the lives of troubled men and their families by providing mentoring, vocational skills, education, and the relationships they need to bridge the gap from addiction to productive community and family life. The Bridge Ministry has a two-phase program which 1) receives men into an eighteen-month residential program in Buckingham County; and 2) allows certain men the opportunity to complete the last six months of the program in the Intern House in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Hours of operation: 9:00 - 4:00

Cost info: There is a $600 admission fee to enter into the Bridge Ministry, but there are no separate program fees for any of the programs, classes, or training that the Bridge provides.
