The Bridge Shelter program offers short term stays to individuals and families experiencing homelessness who are working to secure permanent housing. These programs use former hotel rooms to create safe and stable temporary shelter while providing onsite staff to support people living in the programs with housing and resource navigation, behavioral health needs and more. Each program is operated by a community-based partner who works in coordination with the greater system of care to connect guests from unsheltered housing to permanent housing as quickly as possible.
Washington County currently operates 101 bridge shelter rooms. All referrals are coordinated through Community Connect.
