The Bridge: Founded in 2008, The Bridge is a non-profit organization that provides food, temporary housing and clothing for its guests, as well as transitional services for long-term recovery, which is the shelter`s primary focus. When designing The Bridge, the Mayor`s Task Force wanted to ensure that homeless individuals who were “shelter resistant” because of their pet(s) could be welcomed into an environment that addressed all of their needs. Consequently, a six-unit kennel was added to the architectural plans. Since the kennel`s opening, it is rarely empty, and it receives frequent support from volunteers and in-kind support from City of Dallas Animal Services.
