Bridges [Safe Havens Program] - Shreveport, LA

Located in the Highland area, BRIDGES is a ten-bed “safe haven” designed for the mentally ill homeless, who are unwilling or unable to participate in mental health programs and community-based services. For those who have been living on the streets with a mental illness, the transition to permanent housing can be a shock. BRIDGES provides a small, highly supportive environment where an individual can find shelter and be subject to relatively few service demands. Eventually, once clients become comfortable and are engaged by staff and other program participants, they can participate in mental health, substance abuse and other treatment and supportive services.
