Learn about University's approach to ending homelessness.
Posted: December 03, 2014

This past year, University Christian took a courageous step in being the first organization and church in Maryland to become part of the Bridge of Hope movement, a recognized model of mentorship and support to help homeless families build a better future for themselves.

Through generous giving and a dedicated team of mentors, the journey has been challenging and exciting. The family we are helping is grateful for the support. There is much learning and growing going on. As a church, we have been surrounding the team and family with prayer and love in anyway that we can.

Recently, our work was celebrated by being featured in an article in Just Women magazine, our Disciples Women national publication. The article details the process and vision behind this work. It's a great place to begin if you want to learn more about this ministry and how you might be involved.
