“I am from the gossip and the loud shrieks….
I am from Port-AuPrince, Haiti & fried plantains…” —Alexandra
“I am pursuing my education at Bridge because public school wasn’t working for me. I have made friends here and nobody judges me.” —Luis
“A few months ago, I started using the Bridge counseling program every week. My counselor makes me feel comfortable and is a great help to me. It’s so nice to have someone to talk to when I’m having a problem.” —Bryanna
“Having been raised in a house of violence and neglect, at first I wasn’t sure how to raise a child. But finally I followed what was in my heart and learned to be a good dad.” —Anthony
“If I didn’t have Bridge, I would be couch surfing or sleeping outside. I like the people at the Bridge Shelter. Everyone knows who I am. I’m friendly, and I like to dance. Music keeps me calm and I run the Boston Common in the morning.” —Malcolm
“One of my goals is to become a public speaker and activist for people without voices, for those who are underprivileged. I want people to truly believe that they can ‘change their stars,’ that they don’t have to be where or what they came from.” —Lizzie
“I wanted to raise my son in a different environment, so I took a big leap and left home. For now, Bridge provides me with a safe, positive environment to raise my son, and I’m grateful for that.” —Iesha
