Bridget Ford-Dedicated to Young Adults Finding Their Way


Bridget Ford is a long-time friend of Hope Builders. Not only is she a generous Platinum Sponsor of this year’s 10 Days of Building a Pathway to Prosperity campaign, but she is also a dedicated volunteer and mentor to Hope Builders’ trainees.  

Bridget has been an advocate of Hope Builders since 1995, when she first visited the program’s woodshop, where trainees carved mission-style benches. “It was so inspiring to see the pride these kids had in their newfound skills that I knew I had to get involved,” Bridget recalls. In addition to helping trainees prepare for job interviews, Bridget is the most recent chairwoman of our Light Up A Life gala and has successfully inspired many friends to support her efforts. 

Hope Builders is grateful to Bridget’s commitment. When asked why she’s remained involved over the years, she shared, “It’s a living miracle to see a young person, who is weighed down by life’s challenges, grow and find their way in the world. Hope Builders gives people hope. You can’t put a price on that.”
