Merrill – The BRIDGE Prison Ministry

The BRIDGE Group (800x473)Merrill has been “outside” for only a few months. He credits The BRIDGE with helping him get used to life after being released from prison. “We talked about values when I was at OCI (the Ontario Correctional Institution) but I realize it’s a lot harder on the outside. The BRIDGE helped me find a place to live and helped me to find employment two weeks after I got out. A few weeks ago I had a bit of a relapse. I placed a call to The BRIDGE and within 15 minutes they had gotten back to me. Without that support, I would have been in real trouble. The BRIDGE shows be options that I didn’t know that I had. Here I have friends, people who care about me. I need The BRIDGE. This is where I need to be now. This is what I need to be doing. I appreciate all that The BRIDGE has done for me.”
