Three Ways to Support
Become a Bridge Builder, Partner or Angel of Hope

Can I be a Bridge Builder?
Yes! They are monthly donors in all amounts who provide Bessie's Hope with predictable income to continue work based on compassion, empathy, respect and understanding. 

What are Partners and Angels of Hope?
A collection of individuals, families, businesses and community groups who offer an annual gift. Many are also Bridge Builders too! See our current list of Partners and Angels of Hope, plus benefits to the  levels of giving.
