Bridging Communities. Changing Lives.

our why

Our why was established by mission-based entrepreneur Tessa Edison, who launched Building London Bridges (BLB) in 2017. She named it in honor of her mother, a native Washingtonian, who later lived on London Bridge Drive in Maryland, and was always dedicated to serving those in need.

our mission

Our mission is to support and enhance visibility for small, local charities in the Greater Washington area that are committed to eliminating homelessness, building affordable housing, and supporting underserved communities.

our goal

Our goal is to bridge the gap between donors and smaller organizations that are without dedicated fundraising teams. We aim to increase the availability of transitional housing in underserved communities, complete with comprehensive support services, with a special focus on education and reskilling programs to prepare individuals for the future workforce.
