About Hope Beyond Bridges
Hope Beyond Bridges is a unique ministry that goes out into the community to help homeless people find what they need in life. Whether it is food, shelter, clothing or just an ear to listen to them, Hope Beyond Bridges positions themselves to build relations, not just give out food. Their mission is to RESTORE hope to the homeless by meeting spiritual, emotional, and physical needs because a bridge is NOT a home. Started by David Droll, Hope Beyond Bridges' goal is to reach every major highway around Houston outside of the 610 Loop, to Restore hope and help individuals believe their future will tell a better story and to engage with other organizations who offer services to help the homeless when hope has been restored. Hope Beyond Bridges works with many churches and other Christian organizations and has served over 84,400 meals, has provided these services continually every week for an amazing 550 consecutive Saturdays and has given out over 95,000 hygiene kits. Hope Beyond Bridges serves the homeless right where they are, under the bridges around Houston. Every Saturday, volunteers and community partners provide basic necessities to the homeless they meet: giving them a hearty meal, clothing and hygiene kits. But they don't just feed their basic physical needs, they feed their spirit. Through shared prayers and conversation, they build trust. They build relationships, one meal and one prayer at a time.
