The Bridge of West Tennessee

“From where you are, to where you need to be.”

This quote lines the front of The Bridge’s annual ministry report from the past year.

In 2012, Julie Huggins decided that she wanted to see change in the Obion County area. Every day, she saw single mothers around her struggling to balance their responsibilities, and often getting consumed by all of the baggage that they had to carry. Most of the women in this demographic carry the weight of unsafe relationships, bad family situations, poverty-level wages, and insurmountable debt as a result. She knew that these women needed someone on their team, so she decided to build one – The Bridge.
