SOUTH ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – A bakery in St. Louis is bringing stability to people’s lives one loaf of bread at a time.

Bridge Bread Bakery hires people experiencing homelessness and looking for a way out. 

The owner Fred Domke was inspired by a discussion of poverty at his church.

With his vision, he is kneading these men into stability. Not only by offering them a job, but helping them find a home and transportation. 

"It's choking me up to talk about it," Domke said. "It's such a giant step."
