"I am grateful for the spirit of invitation, hospitality, and inclusion of Solidarity Bridge. It is a place to heal and be healed, to serve and be served, to grow and help others to grow. Truly it is a faith-filled community called by God and growing through faith. I am grateful to have found my place set at this bountiful table of blessings."
