Bridges to Independence

Bridges to Independence (b2i) is Northern Virginias leading provider of services for homeless women/families and those at risk.

They offer a continuum of aid and support for all family members, helping them attain stability and move forward into self-sufficiency. Prevention is their other priority reaching out to at-risk families and helping them avoid homelessness in the first place.

Sullivan House, b2is emergency shelter, provides families with a safe, supportive place to live for three to four months.

The shelter, with ten one- and two-bedroom apartments, can accommodate up to 14 families at a time.

After their shelter stay, four out of every five families are able to move into longer-term rentals with ongoing b2i services.

While residing at Sullivan House, all family members receive intensive assessment, counseling, and referral.

Challenges run the gamut: eviction, medical conditions, domestic violence, substance abuse, traumatic brutality in their home countries, school issues, parenting problems, and more.

From the start, staff also begins tackling another area considered crucial for future success money management.

A detailed budget is worked out with each household, and any wages or benefits are carefully allocated. Along with housing stability, b2i sees financial literacy as a fundamental of self-sufficiency.

    Do you accept donations of clothing and other things a woman might need for re entering the workplace. Thank you. If you do when can my husband drop these items off?
