BridgeBuilders is a Christian missionary organization that works to alleviate poverty in Dallas. BridgeBuilders employs a unique strategy that aims to address the root causes of poverty that emanate from our broken relationships with God, self, others and creation. From the point of missionary contact, we begin by helping the poor grow spiritually, acquire essential life skills including financial education, meet transitional material needs, access professional counseling, receive employment training and finally acquire job placement with our employer partners, thereby breaking the cycle of poverty in individuals, families and the community.
In addition, BridgeBuilders serves hundreds of children and families through its after-school and youth sports programs in South Dallas with daily meals, spiritual and character development, and much-needed academic support.
For more than 20 years, BridgeBuilders has spearheaded the revitalization efforts in the South Dallas community of Bonton, a community marred by historic disinvestment and known for its high crime and poverty rates. What began as a front-porch ministry in the neighbor of Bonton is now one of the fastest-growing nonprofit organizations in Dallas.
