Area of Service

The Bridge Home serves the Two Rivers Region. This consists of the following counties, Story, Boone, Greene, Hardin and Marshall.

The Bridge Home (formerly Emergency Residence Project) is devoted to bridging the gap between homelessness and housing by providing shelter, support, and inspiring a pathway forward to individuals and families experiencing or on the verge of homelessness.

We are the only organization in Story County – and all of the Two Rivers Region – that both shelters and works directly with individuals and families on the verge of or experiencing homelessness. We do this to ensure we can help navigate those we serve to a more stable environment, while also providing the security of a roof over their head. We are not here to enable; we are here to stop the cycle of homelessness.
