Bridging 101

About Bridging

Bridging, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization primarily serving the greater Twin Cities, provides donated furniture and household goods to families and individuals transitioning out of homelessness and poverty. Bridging gives hope – and for many – a leap toward financial stability for the first time. With locations in Roseville and Bloomington, Bridging is driven by volunteers and donations of basic home essential items from the community. Since 1987, Bridging has served more than 95,000 households, and reduces landfill space by 10 million pounds each year.
