7 Bridges to Recovery is a non-profit ministry focused on saving the lost souls from the streets of Atlanta. The purpose of 7 Bridges' ministry is to rescue the homeless from the streets and help them break the binds of drugs, alcohol, prostitution, sexual addiction and abuse. The ministry, which calls itself a rescue team for Jesus Christ, was started by Pastor 7 Wells who accepted the Lord in 1996 while he was in Federal Prison. The name comes from the founder along with the fact that 7 Bridges also ministers to people who live under the highway bridges in Atlanta. The Smyrna headquarters is a homeless shelter called The Garden, which gives 50 less fortunate women and children a healthy meal and warm bed every night of the week.
