The Bridge Fund of Westchester

in Non-Profits

The Bridge Fund of Westchester is an innovative program whose motto is Prevention is the Best Cure for Homelessness. Its operation is unique in that it combines financial assistance (interest-free loans or grants of up to $2,500 per household) with intense budget counseling to families on the verge of losing their housing as a result of a sudden crisis, such as illness or job loss. Our staff receives referrals of working poor families and individuals in danger of losing their housing. The Bridge Fund helps to stabilize families in their housing by offering a combination of financial assistance (generally interest-free loans), budget counseling, advocacy and referrals. 171 E.
