We are so excited to be spending our first week in our new location at Good Work in South Dallas. Good Work is an incredible new co-working space that will be hosting the BridgeBuilders WORK team and class, along with our support and executive staff. 

This move opens up enormous opportunities for BridgeBuilders ministry to the community. First, being located more centrally in South Dallas, clients will be able to access our services much easier than before. Previously, a bus ride from South Dallas to our former location in West Dallas took about an hour. Today, at Good Work, students will be looking at a 15 to 20-minute commute. We are praying that removing this barrier, as well as a few others will increase the size of our WORK program class dramatically.

Another exciting opportunity afforded by the space is significant cost savings without reducing our program capacities in any way. Officing and training our WORK students out of this facility should save us approximately $80,000 a year! This means that the generous donations of our partners and supporters will go extend more and more to the people we serve and not the building we occupy. 

Our current plan is to be operational in our new space on May 14th, launching our first WORK class the following Monday. We invite you to join us in praying that many people will be impacted with the gospel and many families will be able to make the transition from dependency to self-sufficiency through the power of the gospel as we are able to more effectively serve those in South Dallas.
