Glen Ellyn Backyard BBQ Cook-Off

Bridge Builders

Founded in 2002 by local residents that take a hands-on approach to enhancing the lives of Bridge Communities' client families, particularly the lives of the children in the Transitional Housing program.  The Bridge Builders host family focused activities and fund-raising events to raise funds for the Auto Donation program, college scholarships, extra-curricular children's activities and women's programs.

A Year in Review

Since 1988, Bridge Communities has helped more than 600 families cross the bridge from homlessness to self sufficiency and permanent housing.  The 2013 Generosity Report illustrates how your generosity built the foundation for that success, now and in the future.  You can also view client graduate outcome reports and program statistics to learn more about Bridge's impact on homeless families' lives.
