Bridge Ministry of Acadiana
Bridge Ministry of Acadiana is teaching Christ-like character coupled with educational, relational, and spiritual support to at-risk youth in an under-resourced community.
William C. Schumacher Family Foundation has awarded a $50,000 matching grant to The Church Academy, an affiliate of Bridge Ministry of Acadiana. The matching grant award will support Bridge Ministry's capital campaign and raise funds for The Church Academy's facility, after-school care and scholarship needs.
"Generational poverty greatly effects the education of countless children in our 'four-corners' community," says Joel Greene III, executive director of Bridge Ministry of Acadiana. "Investing in these precious young champions through the very generous matching grant from the William C. Schumacher Family Foundation allows Bridge Ministry of Acadiana and the newly-formed The Church Academy to advance our students from notoriously poor academic performers to over-achievers with Christ-like character."
