Serving Boulder’s Homeless & Working Poor
FROM OUR EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Dear Bridge House Supporter:

What a year?! In 2012, Bridge House underwent a major surge of growth. We brought optimism and a
fresh perspective to looking at the issues surrounding homelessness and, as a result, are able to see
clear opportunities to have great impact in moving people off the streets.

True to our belief that homelessness need not be permanent, we are strategically investing in
tangible solutions to address the root causes of homelessness. We are looking beyond managing the
challenges of our clients and investing in their futures.

Through the data we now collect at our Resource Center, we have a better understanding of who
our clients are, what they need to be successful, who is most vulnerable, and, most importantly,
who is actively seeking help to improve their circumstance. In 2012, the services we provided such
as employment, sobriety support, and access to stabilizing resources like medication, benefits, and
healthcare, were more available than ever before. Our services have become more organized into
clear pathways leading to higher-levels of self-sufficiency. We have learned that for many clients to be
successful and to have lasting outcomes, our interventions must be more comprehensive.

Building on the highlights of 2012, in 2013 we will invest in more solution-oriented programs like our
Ready to Work employment program and our new Resource Center. 2013 is sure to be another year of
innovation as we have broken ground on our very own commercial kitchen which will allow us to grow
our culinary arts training program, create jobs, and improve the nutrition and quality of the meals we
serve. We are also deepening our case management services for the most chronically homeless.

In 2013, Bridge House will remain optimistic and opportunistic. It is not acceptable that the citizens
of Boulder feel impotent with the growing numbers of people on our street corners and poverty
statistics growing across the County. Our community is too caring and too innovative to accept this
status quo. The spirit of Bridge House will remain one of action, intention and innovation. We take our
responsibility seriously to lead the community toward a more comprehensive and effective system of
homeless services grounded in what works, what is dignified for those we serve, and what is possible.
And, after all, everything is possible in Boulder if we put our minds to it.

Thank you for your support of our work. We look forward to your continued partnership to ensure a
brighter future for the homeless men and women of Boulder.

Warm wishes,

Isabel McDevitt
