After several discussions, and many prayers, the Bridge Builder Board of Directors has unanimously decided it is time to close Bridge Builders Counseling & Mentoring (BBC&M), effective December 31, 2023. Over 27 years BBC&M has served several hundred single parents raising their children on their own with counseling and mentoring. We thank so many loyal supporters who have given their time and finances to provide these services to so many in our community.

This is what most people think of when they think of Single-Parent homes, but there are many more homes that we are called to minister to as part of James 1:27
Even with two parents or adults in the home, there are still unique challenges such as learning how to establish bonds and boundaries between the new parent or adult, accepting the co-parenting relationship, and introducing parenting to adults that have never done it.
Grandparent homes also have unique challenges where children may not voice their sadness over not being in their parents home. Through clear communication these feelings can be explored and acknowledged, helping the children feel even more fulfilled and loved.
Foster homes, similar to Grandparent homes and Blended Two Parent homes, have many needs to help their children deal with buried feelings, and learning how to be parents.
