Hands-on auto mechanic training
The Bridge Ministry works in Virginia to transform the lives of troubled men and their families by providing mentoring, vocational skills, education, counseling, and the relationships they need to bridge the gap from addiction to productive community and family life.
While serving a long term sentence in a regional jail, Bridge Ministry founder, William Washington, found the strength to begin a new life. After overcoming a life of addictive behavior, he began reaching out to those in jail through a community meeting. Later, he opened his home to families in his neighborhood and to troubled men who needed help overcoming their addictions. Since 1996, The Bridge Ministry has been providing a second chance for men who are committed to breaking free from life controlling issues.
