Mayor Mike Rawlings:

“Since 2008, The Bridge has been a strong partner for the City of Dallas, working hard to provide necessary services to people experiencing homelessness. Together, we have made great strides by getting people the care they need. Thousands have received not only short-term services, but also transitioned to long-term income and/or housing. The Bridge helps Dallas be a world-class city.”

From a human perspective, we all want people experiencing homelessness to have help getting better. From a business perspective, The Bridge is a strategic investment in revitalizing the area.”
