Brooke’s passion for giving back to the community compelled her to volunteer at The Bridge, an organization that assists homeless individuals in obtaining permanent supportive housing. Her years at The Bridge began in 2012, where she was moved by the amount of work accomplished by volunteers, and she wanted to devote her personal time to an organization that impacts so many individuals.
