Books Bridge Hope

Books Bridge Hope is a new initiative sponsored by Passages & Prose community collaborators.

The mission of Books Bridge Hope is to promote reading, writing, and literacy by providing books to community members residing in shelters, residential housing, and on the streets of Pittsburgh. In collaboration with Pittsburgh Mercy Operation Safety Net, Books Bridge Hope will provide a mobile library to deliver books to these community members on a monthly basis. Writing workshops will also be conducted to aid these individuals in penning their personal story or writings of their choice.

Through Books Bridge Hope, several hundred books have already been donated to children residing in shelters throughout Pittsburgh with the assistance of Michelle Bond, Executive Director at the Alle-Kiski HOPE Center.
