Bridge Builders 2024

Bridge Builders is our annual signature fundraising event that highlights real client stories and the life change you make possible.

This year, our focus will be “building hope one block at a time, constructing brighter futures for children experiencing homelessness.” You don’t want to miss this uplifting time of reflection and vision casting for the future.

Check out this hope-filled story from a former resident, Christina’s, whose hard work led to positive life-change and a nursing career while her three precious girls thrive in Girl Scouts, music, reading, art, and more.

 Chair Couple

We are excited to have Eric and Gina Bailey serve as this year’s Bridge Builders Chair Couple! The Baileys have been business and philanthropic leaders in our community for decades, which includes their unwavering support and advocacy for the work of Metropolitan Ministries.

In serving on the Board of Directors, spending time volunteering as a family in the Holiday Tent, and visiting the Sullivan Partnership School, the Baileys have witnessed firsthand the tremendous impact of Metropolitan Ministries.

We express our deepest gratitude to Eric and Gina Bailey for helping so many children “build hope.”
