Make Your Community Better

"I need to worry about my own quality of life before worrying about my community's." 

Bridges volunteers don't just get to help our clients get connected with the right resources - it connects our community together too. Our volunteers come from all walks of life and from all different parts of your community. 

Whether you're mingling with your fellow parents, colleagues, business owners and more, the volunteer experience at Bridges builds community bonds through a joint mission. No matter where you come from or how long you've lived in Essex and/or Union County, there's always something new to learn and share at a Bridges volunteer event. 

We don't just see volunteering helping to combat homelessness - we see it as a way to strengthen the entire New Jersey network. 

Just One Hour Can Change Your Neighborhood Forever
