Bridge Builders meet single parents and their families in where they are at in their lives and offer them hope through free or reduced fee counseling.

We believe single parents experiencing loss or trauma who are raising children alone due to death, separation, divorce, incarceration or abandonment are the widows of today.

Bridge Builders offer real support and walk out life with each unique family by guiding a single parent and their children to find a new normal.

We believe its our calling and mission to walk alongside single parent families in their life journey.


  • Professional Christian Counseling is offered to single parents and their children by our partnering professional counselors.  For families without insurance, a sliding fee scale-based is used to determine the fee for each session based on income, usually paying between $10.00 or $20.00 a session.  No one has ever been denied due to inability to pay and Bridge Builders will cover the gap.  Our short-term counseling is designed to offer 20 sessions of counseling. 

  • Mentoring is the cornerstone of our services. It is our firm belief that transformation happens through relationships with each other and walking out our faith by meeting people where they are at in life.  We carefully screen and train our adult and teen mentors to lead groups to work with children and teens who do not have a father or mother figure actively involved in his/her life. Special events, groups and our unique mentoring program is designed  to provide opportunities for Mentors and Mentees to develop the mentoring relationships.  

  •  Many struggle with issues which include fear, despair, feelings of worthlessness, hopelessness, low-self esteem lack of basic parenting and life skills. By working with these hurting families we are able to send the message that Restoration is Possible, Hope is Available, and we are here to help with the struggles of being a single parent.
