With one of the longest-seeming election seasons heading to a close, I am motivated to pause and reflect on what it means to live in a democracy. Civic engagement is a sign of a healthy community, and it thrills me to see people getting involved in ways that are individually and collectively meaningful. Civic engagement strengthens networks and builds social capital—important ingredients for stability and growth.

“Compassion” is one of BRIDGE’s core values. With the holiday season upon us and the new year approaching, many people are taking time to reflect upon what they are thankful for and how to help others who are less fortunate.

To provide a bit of perspective, the average annual income of a BRIDGE resident is about $32,000. And at some properties, such as Alemany, which we recently acquired, the need is even greater: can you imagine raising a family in San Francisco on an income of $12,000 per year?
