Shelby's Bridge is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization passionate about providing enriching life experiences for people with disABILITIES. Our first venture is Shelby's Bridge Gift & Thrift Shop in Sudan, Texas. We are proud to provide both an inclusive, meaningful work experience for adults with disabilities and a unique shopping experience that will leave shoppers excited to return.

The long-term vision for Shelby's Bridge is to create an inclusive community that our Friends can call home opening in 2024. Twenty tiny homes, a conference center, library, party barn and more make up this community that will offer built-in vocational opportunities for the residents. 


Gift & Thrift Shop and 

Shopping for treasures at our unique Gift and Thrift Shop will forever change the lives of adults with disabilities in Lamb county. We are proud to offer a job training program that equips adults with disabilities, who might otherwise be left out of the workforce, with genuine life skills to include building relationships, money management, organizational methods, and food service techniques. If shopping leaves you thirsty and hungry, we've got you covered. Step up to the snack bar in the Sunshine Cafe  for coffee,  drinks, and seasonal food choices. Lunch will be served daily from

11:00 AM - 2:00 PM. Shelby's Bridge Gift & Thrift Shop is more than a store, it is an experience that leads to independence for adults with disabilities.


"When we build, let us think that we build forever. Let it not be for the present delight nor our use alone. Let it be such work as our descendants will look upon with praise and thanksgiving in their hearts."
