The Bridge is a faith-based non-profit, founded by partners in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and the Reformed Church in America. We began in New Town at St. Charles in 2008, selling Fair Trade products to the local community from a small kiosk. 

Since then, The Bridge has existed in a variety of spaces, and we have been supported and led by many. The guiding values of The Bridge, however, have remained the same.

We exist to bridge ethnic, racial, religious and

socio-economic cultures. We are concerned advocates, founded and supported by faith communities, desiring to bring peace, justice and dignity to the world.
