BIMA Services is a 501c3 nonprofit organization, serving Pierce County Washington.
The organization was founded in 2017 by Bridgette Johnson who had the vision to create a space that allows people of all walks of life to find restoration.
Goal: To build a solid foundation through the 5 pillars of restoration
for individuals who lost their voice to be “HEARD”
Be Housed Be Educated Be Assured Be Restored Be Determined
Bridgette founded BIMA (Believing In Myself Again) Services in 2017 in reaction to the rising homelessness issue facing the Pierce County area. Her nonprofit provides community outreach, resources and a safe haven to individuals and families who have lost their voice and don’t know where to turn by helping them find their voice to be HEARD, Housed, Educated, Assured, Restored & Determined.
Bridgette’s own experience with homelessness 17 years ago combined with her accreditation as a Licensed Substance Abuse Counselor and Social Worker, eventually was her guiding light to start BIMA alongside her husband, Marvin. Her front row seat to sudden upheaval and loss enabled Bridgette with the skills, insight and heart space to be a beacon of hope to others in need. In her spare time Bridgette enjoys cooking, singing and spending time with her family.
