Our programs are open to all women (transgender and cisgender), non-binary, and two-spirit people who identify as part of the women’s community and who have been impacted by violence or trauma at any time in their lives. We believe and support diverse women who are looking for a life change. Our offices are located in Southern Vancouver Island on the traditional territories of the Lkwungen (Esquimalt and Songhees) Malahat, Pacheedaht, Scia’new, T’Sou-ke and W̱SÁNEĆ, (Pauquachin, Tsartlip, Tsawout, Tseycum) peoples.
“Taking the step to contact [Bridges] back in 2014 and working through your program changed my life. The employment program was everything that I needed to know but had never been taught, the skills that you give to women should be taught to everyone from elementary school through to high school. I often wonder why my parents didn’t teach me about things like boundaries and that I was allowed to have them, I think it’s because nobody ever taught them. I will be forever thankful for your program and the tools I came away with.”
