The Program

Vocational Training

While in The Bridge 12-month Recovery Program, residents have the awesome opportunity to learn a trade that they can use after graduation. This serves three purposes:

  • Builds self-esteem and a sense of accomplishment in the area of work ethics.
    (Phil. 2:29 / Prov. 13:19).
  • Receive training to provide job skills and stability themselves and their families upon graduation from the program.
    (Prov. 14:23 / 2 Thess. 3:10).
  • Helps to provide some of the necessary income the Ministry needs to continue serving others.
