Are you looking for a special gift to honor a special person in your life on Father’s Day, June 19?

We are excited to support HomeBridge Ventures, Incorporated for the second year with our 2022 Father’s Day missions collection!

HomeBridge looks to break the cycle of poverty, violence and incarceration by providing “healing, hiring and hope” to previously incarcerated and gang-involved men and women in the Bridgeport area. An 18-month re-entry program, combining paid work with wrap-around services will allow them to become contributing members of their families and communities.
