Bridge a Life is a 501c3 not for profit organization serving locally in Sarasota, Manatee, and DeSoto Counties, as well as globally in Uganda, Africa. BaL believes that every child deserves a safe and loving family, and seeks to fulfill its mission of: Sharing Christ-centered hope with children who have been abused, abandoned, orphaned, or neglected while supporting foster and adoptive families through awareness, training, outreach, and partnerships.
Locally, there is a massive shortage of foster/adoptive families. BaL assists local agencies in recruiting high quality, nurturing families so that, “children are loved in fully-equipped families, bringing about healing and generational change.”
There are many caring individuals who want to help these children, but are not in a position personally to foster or adopt. BaL partners with such individuals to provide critical support services such as home improvement projects, training, counseling, meal delivery, and childcare.
