Who We Are

Bridges of Hope, Allegan County is a 501c3 non-profit organization, founded in August 2014. We believe that poverty is not just a lack of money, but a lack of RESOURCES.


What are these TOOLS? Can SUPPORT be more than just financial? What do we mean by EDUCATION? And how do CONNECTIONS help people to walk out of poverty?

Both personal experience and data-based research show us that poverty is complex – it is not just about managing finances. 

Rather, Poverty is a lack of RESOURCES. Resources that can be mental, physical, emotional, social, cultural, or spiritual. They include things like trust, motivation, persistence, relationships, perspective, and resiliency. Access to these resources leads to walking away from poverty.

 Our mission is to foster relationships with individuals desiring to move out of poverty by providing tools, support, education, and connections to community resources.
