Launch of Transportation Route

BridgeBuilders Transportation Services weekly route officially launched on September 30, 2019! Through this ministry, residents will be able to visit Walmart Neighborhood Market, Parkland Clinic, the bank, and many other essential locations on a weekly basis. Milton Baker, Transportation Coordinator at BridgeBuilders, has been the heart of this endeavor. “I, myself, am a senior in this neighborhood. I am very passionate about the other seniors that live in Bonton, and I want to do whatever I can to serve them,” Milton remarked.

Adopt-A-Block: Partnering with the City and the BNA

We are confident that the Bonton Neighborhood Association and the City of Dallas will prove to be extremely valuable relationships as our residents continue to build up their community. These partnerships are essential to our mission to engage, equip, and empower individuals, families, and communities in South Dallas. Individually, we are limited. Together, we can make a lasting impact on Bonton for generations to come! We welcome you to join us as we venture to restore hope and transform communities.

Bridge to Summer 2019 Recap

Luke 2:52 proclaims, “And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.” Bridge to Summer was designed to engage students on such a journey. Jyron Jackson explained, “BridgeBuilders summer program has taught me more about God than I ever knew before.” Equipping Jyron and his peers with truth and witnessing them move from “here to there” on their spiritual journey was the greatest adventure of all!

Adopt-A-Block: Welcome Back, Neighbor!

A record number of friends from Prestonwood Singles Ministry returned to Bonton for Adopt-A-Block service day on Saturday, July 20. Bonton residents welcomed sixty Prestonwood “neighbors” into their homes, front porches and backyards on Dorris Street. Lawns were mowed, weeds were pulled, houses were painted, and yards were cleared of debris as friendships were being formed and renewed.

Celebrate & Elevate

Turner Courts Recreation Center was the place to be Thursday, May 30, for high fives, hardware, and highlights celebrating students who participated in BridgeBuilders athletic programs throughout the year.
On June 1, Elevate Your Game (EYG) Basketball Camp was held at Turner Courts Recreation Center continuing a BridgeBuilders and Bonton tradition.

Made NEW in Bonton

Most of us share a common location as our physical birthplace, a hospital. Our spiritual birthplace, however, can be as unique as our individual souls. DQ Teague, friend of BridgeBuilders, experienced the birth of his NEW life in Christ during Hoop Church in Bonton. You might say he was reborn or made NEW, court-side!

Prestonwood Singles Adopt-A-Block

Did you see what happened on Dorris street?! BridgeBuilders hosted Adopt-the-Block serve day in Bonton on Saturday, April 27, beginning with families and homes on Dorris Street. Community members from Prestonwood Baptist Church worked alongside Bonton residents getting their homes and lawns ready for the spring and summer season.

I Got Your Back

This past Saturday was I Got Your Back, our annual event providing much-needed school supplies both in Bonton. This event is impossible without the dozens of volunteers and friends like you providing the backpacks and supplies. On behalf of the 200 students and families who participate in BridgeBuilders Kids programming throughout the year...thank you!
