Welcome to FaithBridge
We are BUILDING & BRIDGING relationships and resources to co-create solutions that break cycles of insanity that have denied and do deny children the best opportunities and outcomes.
FaithBridge HOPES Framework
We will be scheduling our Fall Policy Circles to co-create strategies and solutions to realize our HOPES. More information to come!
Housing solutions that prevent displacement of neighbors and facilitate the diversification of neighborhoods to ensure the intentional integration of our living and learning spaces.
Opportunities for students that help to expand their vision of what is possible by intentionally and regularly exposing them to college, careers, and cultures and concerns beyond their own.
Policies, practices, and personnel that break structures and systems of oppression and therefore empower communities to co-create and sustain solutions that align with liberation, justice, equity, joy and the fulfillment of our shared hopes.
Equitable & excellent education for every child in welcoming, liberated, life-giving, and loving learning spaces that prepare them to live their dreams and to make a positive difference in the world.
Supportive and safe communities that ensure the total wellness of students, their families, and all neighbors by increasing and strengthening protective factors and proactively eliminating risk factors.
Our FAITHBRIDGE systems SHIFT model
For us, it is about RELATIONSHIPS, RESOURCES, REPRESENTATION, and RESULTS to shift mindsets to ensure an equitable and excellent education for every child.
It will take:
We create circles for relationships to be built and bridged, in and across communities, so that we move together for better outcomes and opportunities for children.
We have committed our resources with a mindset of abundance, not scarcity, to courageously and equitably meet the needs of children in all schools, in every community.
We cultivate informed representation of students, parents, educators, and ecumenical leaders to shift policies and practices to equitably benefit all children.
We co-create solutions with our community to realize the results of 100% of children ready for the choice of college, and appropriately prepared to realize their dreams.
FaithBridge is committed to building and bridging relationships and resources to ensure an equitable and excellent education for every child. We boldly aim for a reality where 100% of children graduate ready for the choice of college and appropriately prepared to realize their dreams.
