Bridge Communities (Bridge)
Through the help of its program partners and supporters, Bridge Communities provides free transitional housing to 128 homeless DuPage County families each year. During the two years each family spends in the program, each family is able to save money, learn budgeting skills, and obtain better employment, so each family can live self-sufficiently once they graduate. The mission of Bridge Communities is to transition homeless families to self-sufficiency by working with partners to provide mentoring, housing, and supportive services.
