Local non-profit Bridge to Home is beginning its fourth year of a program that offers hot meals, warm showers, case management services, health screenings and hygiene supplies to those in need. Located at Bridge to Home’s winter shelter site, the program provides up to 50 individuals in need with dinner, a sack lunch, canned goods, and case management to help them find permanent housing solutions.
Feeding it Forward takes place every Tuesday through Friday night from 6-8:30 p.m. through the fall. Bridge to Home is located off Railroad Ave. at 23031 Drayton Street in Newhall.
“For many of our clients this will be an essential opportunity, to not only have a warm, well-balanced meal, but also work with a case manager to get needed support that will help lead them to permanent housing,” said Bridge to Home Executive Director Silvia Gutierrez. “For those who have fallen on hard times, Feeding it Forward will provide them with relief, hope and the knowledge that they have a place to go and someone to turn to.”
For community members who would like to donate, Bridge to Home is currently accepting travel-sized personal items for hygiene kits, such as combs, shampoo, conditioner and body wash.
