Update as of April 6, 2020

Dear Lifebridge Friends:

We continue to operate under such uncertain times. This week I want to share about our staff who are on the front lines to serve such a vulnerable population. We have shifted schedules to ensure we have a case manager onsite during the day which is regular protocol, however we have extended coverage into evening hours up until midnight at our Salem location. The staff is also stepping in to help from working the front desk to serving in the kitchen.

Since our volunteer group leaders are not able to visit, our staff members are offering supportive services and programs to our clients including virtual AA & NA meetings, and onsite meditation, coping skills, walking group, creative writing and coloring groups. Supporters have asked about sending encouraging notes to our staff/clients. If you would like to do so, please email your notes to Melissa in the development office as she will gather to share with our team – m.lynch@lifebridgenorthshore.org.

Our Thrift Shop remains closed which continues to be a real challenge as a loss of revenue to us as a nonprofit. We continue to explore emergency funding grants and are so grateful to foundations and donors who have committed to supporting us during this difficult time.

Please consider making a philanthropic donation to Lifebridge. Thank you for your consideration.  https://lifebridgenorthshore.org/support/donate/

Kind regards,

Our mission is to end the crisis of homelessness. We believe the way to solve this crisis, one person at a time, is to provide housing with supportive services, to encourage personal and income development, and stability in physical and mental health. We do this through our three locations in Salem, Beverly, and Gloucester.

Lifebridge’s Outreach Worker and Medical Support Services are funded in part by the City of Salem Department of Planning & Community Development, U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development.
