“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?

December is a good time to talk about Peace on Earth--something we seem to have in short supply. As the war in Syria continues to raze ancient cities and inflict horrible casualties on civilian families, America continues to reel from open meanness, and the most divisive election in memory.

How do we turn our attention back to common civility, caring for others, respect for diversity of people, of opinion, of religion, of lifestyle? By taking a deep breath, giving it some thought and keeping on doing what we are doing.
