In 2016, Bridgehaven discovered God’s calling upon our ministry is that of abundance: abundant change, abundant growth, abundant challenges, abundant grace, abundant blessing and abundant love. As you view the videos below from each area of the ministry, we pray you will be blessed and overjoyed by what you learn. Thank you for your support of this ministry!
An average of 20 classes were offered each week to our Earn While You Learn clients in the areas of: Life Skills, Family, Relationships, and Spirituality (41 different class topics). Clients earn material support of food, diapers, clothing and more when they attend classes.
In 2016, our staff and volunteer Client Advocates administered:

We hosted our first Rachel’s Vineyard retreat in July.
In 2016, we were able to reach over 4,700 students in the community with a message of relational health and sexual risk avoidance (that’s a 235% increase from 2015).
Abundant Love: Volunteers
22,149 volunteer hours were logged at Bridgehaven and Treasures (that’s 425 hours per week, equivalent to 10 additional full-time staff).
Abundant Blessings: Treasures
