Bridgeway’s partners with local organizations and creates opportunities to help individuals and families through hard times. We have five ministries that we feature below as well as Assist Care.
Trained budget coaches assist individuals and families in getting their finances in order by walking them through a biblical financial curriculum. Plans can also be made to aide in the process of relieving indebtedness, create a spending plan, create a stewardship plan, or with other needs. To become a budget coach or to request budget assistance, email us.
Community Closet is a Bridgeway ministry, which provides those in need to pick up fresh produce, milk, eggs, produce, and other food items each Thursday from 11:00am-12:00pm. Please contact us if Thursday is near or on a holiday to confirm we’re open. If you would like more information, interested in serving in this ministry, or need services yourself please click here.
THE GATHERING INN
The Gathering Inn serves the homeless of Placer County. Comprehensive services address the mental health, addiction, employment, medical, dental, and basic needs of the homeless throughout the day with on-site programs. Bridgeway hosts these guests from this program over night in our lobby on the first Thursday each month. Bridgeway provides them a meal and offers fun activities to participate in when available. If you are interested in more information or would like to serve these guests, please click here.
THE GENESIS PROCESS
We all must make changes in order to become healthy people. The Genesis Process provides Christians with the insight and tools necessary to live free from the unhealthy thoughts, attitudes and behaviors which rob us of the life and relationships God created us for. Whatever challenge is keeping you stuck- be it addiction, anger, anxiety, fear, hopelessness, procrastination, etc.- there is hope for healing and lasting change. Genesis Process Change Groups are a safe and supportive place to grow in community. If you are interested in joining a change group, please click here
Assist is a program that partners with individuals towards developing practical, sustainable solutions to meet basic needs. Assist cannot offer emergency financial relief. Support is offered by providing access to coaches and social workers who promote a collaborative process of solution focus practice and resourcing towards agreed upon goals. To learn more about Assist, please watch the video below.
Assist’s services and resources include a partnership with a social worker that can offer things like motivational interviewing, community referrals, counseling scholarships, financial assistance, food and household provisions, client advocacy and accountability, and referrals to Care and Compassion services.
When determining partners for Assist, Bridgeway considers the individual’s plan for long-term development. Individuals who desire to develop long-term goals towards spiritual, mental and environmental health should apply.
Each application will be reviewed and responded to within 2-3 weeks of the form being completed. Within that time period, you will receive instructions about scheduling either a Budget Care Consultation (required for financial requests), or your first meeting with a social worker.

For financial emergencies, we encourage you to reach out to agencies that can provide crisis alleviation.
We help people get their finances in order by teaching how to do finances God's way. More than 2,350 verses address God's way of handling money and possessions. We want everyone to learn how peace and contentment can be achieved by applying these principles, see marriages strengthened, and stewardship goals applied.
Who We Are
We are a team of men and women who are trained to help a single or a couple. Plans can be made to relieve indebtedness, create a spending plan, make your current budget work, create a stewardship plan,or with other needs. Using a two-pronged approach, a person will get practical help while understanding what the Bible has to say about money.
