Message from the Executive Director, Our 2023 Impact


Dear Supporters, Partners, and Friends,

As I reflect on 2023, I am filled with a sense of pride and accomplishment. Pride in our amazing group of staff members who give their time, energy and passion every day to ensuring that our community has the services and supports that they need. Accomplishment from navigating the complexity of our political atmosphere and being given the opportunity to open so many more homes with the passing of M110. Seeing the vision come to life has been impressive. In the past year, our hard-working team has expanded capacity by almost 200 new beds in the four counties we serve.

Over the past year, Bridges to Change has continued to provide vital support and services to individuals in need throughout Oregon. From our peer-led housing programs to our innovative peer mentor services and behavioral health programs, we have remained steadfast in our efforts to support individuals as they overcome obstacles and build brighter futures for themselves and their families.

Looking ahead, I am excited about the opportunities that lie ahead for Bridges to Change. As we move into housing development, we are more committed than ever to expanding our impact and providing housing to those who need it most. Whether it’s through expanding our housing programs, enhancing our peer mentor services, or forging new partnerships with community organizations, we are dedicated to building a stronger, more resilient community for all.

None of this would be possible without the generous support of our donors, community partners, and supporters. Your unwavering commitment to our mission inspires us every day, and we are deeply grateful for your continued support.

As we embark on the next chapter of our journey, I am filled with optimism and hope for the future of Bridges to Change. Together, we will continue to create positive change and transform lives in our community as we strive for health and housing for all.

Warm regards,
