At BridgeWay Village, our residents will complete a 12-18 month Christ-Centered program Our holistic programming will be designed to come along side the ladies as the move through their case management plan, as well as post graduation. All BridgeWay ladies will be assigned a one-on-one mentor who will meet with them for one hour every other week. This mentor will offer guidance, encouragement, and friendship. These mentors have committed themselves to our ladies for the duration of the program, plus an additional year post graduation.
Prior to being accepted into our program ladies will complete an application, go through an interview process, complete a drug test, and agree to our policies and procedures. We receive referrals from partnering agencies, but those ladies will also go through our application and interview process.
As part of our programming, BridgeWay Village residents will be required to hold a first shift job. If they are on disability, they well be required to volunteer based on their limitations. Residents will pay a third of their income as their ministry fee. BridgeWay will save on third of their income and they will learn to live off the remaining third.
Residents will be enrolled in Bible study classes, classes in financial stability and life skills, as well as Celebrate Recovery. Job skills and career training will provide our residents with sustainable long-term careers and employment opportunities.
BridgeWay Village will help ladies experience an abundant life in Christ. God has a plan and a purpose for every resident. Our desire is to help them identify their purpose, and *(DEVELOP)* steps to be living our their purpose. Our ladies will learn to live in community and develop iron sharpen*(ed)* friendships with other residents. Our program will help them develop the disciplines and skills needed to obtain and stay in housing to host quarterly events that bring past graduates back on to our campus to reconnect with our staff, volunteers, and other residents. Accountability and re-connection is crucial in helping to meet our goals and to make Spartanburg a place where women do not sleep on the streets.
