Funding for the Bridgeview Education & Employment Resource Center

The Bridgeview Education and Employment Resource Center provides 8,900 square feet of space housing classrooms, meeting space, a computer lab, teaching kitchen, office space and more. Washington Department of Employment (Work Source), Goodwill Job Connection, Lighthouse Credit Union, and Bridgeview have permanent offices in the center. In addition, community partners provide employment readiness classes, job referrals, college classes, health and wellness classes, parenting classes, support groups, job and health fairs, financial counseling, and more on site. Our Resource Center offers low-income families a place to start their journey out of poverty.

The Resource Center is designed with partners and low-income families in mind. There is no charge for authorized partners to use the facility and evening and weekend access is available. A partner agency “Governing Committee” determines operating expectations and norms. Located in the Skyline Crest neighborhood, Bridgeview Resource Center is part of a larger transformation for this low-income community of 138 homes, which includes a new Boys and Girls Club and 28 new units of housing for homeless youth and youth aging out of foster care.
