The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members.

Our Story

Bridge of Light is a nonprofit organization created in 2015 after discovering the growing amount of individuals and adults experiencing homelessness in Atlanta. We started by putting together lunch bags with encouraging notes. As we continued to spend time in the community, we realized that there were other needs that were not being addressed. One of the first collection drives we organized was Under A-wearness. We started this because most people that are under-resourced or homeless may be able to find food, but their other essential needs are not met.

We Believe

Everyone Deserves Dignity.

Our mission is to support and affirm the dignity of individuals experiencing poverty and/or homelessness in their transition to self-sufficiency.
