The Bridge Homeless Assistance Center was conceived to engage and regenerate our most disenfranchised members of the community and improve the social equity of the City of Dallas. The result is a campus with buildings arranged around a series of landscaped courtyards that are designed to promote a sense of safety, a place where personal connections can be made and relationships developed. The Bridge is the largest homeless shelter to receive LEED Silver certification.
Since opening in May 2008, The Bridge has been more successful than anticipated. More than 1.5 million meals have been served, 1,400 individuals have been placed in permanent housing, the crime rate in the surrounding area has reduced by 23% and the chronic homeless statistics show a reduction of more than 50%.
