About the Bridge Care Center

The Bridge Care Center (BCC) is a drop-in center for men and women experiencing homelessness or economic hardship in the Ballard area of Seattle.  From their website:

“At our core, the work we do at the BCC is rooted in dignity – we know that all people are valuable and have worth. We see caring for our community as a collaborative effort, where we help bridge connections between our clients and various organizations/services in order to provide sustained support for those struggling and those working to move themselves up and out of homelessness.”

The Bridge Care Center at Ballard Commons is a ministry of Quest Church.
