"By providing housing to a family in need, Bridge allows us to save the money we need for the future.  My wonderful case manager and mentors taught me how to see my future and make better decisions in a way that I had never done before. I am now, on my own, able to continue my life down a path that was started by their guidance."

Transitional Housing Program Partners

Who we work with

Bridge Communities works in partnership with local faith-based and community action groups in providing transitional housing to homeless families that live and work in DuPage County. By working together, Bridge and its Transitional Housing Program Partners can provide a comprehensive program to those we serve.

Our Transitional Housing Program Partners provide:
  • Volunteer Mentors: the "heart" of our Transitional Housing Program model. Trained volunteer mentors meet on an ongoing, regular basis with the families and help them develop the life skills to achieve and maintain their self-sufficiency.  These mentors work in partnership with Bridge Communities' professional case managers.
  • Financial Support: share in the financial costs of renting an apartment and associated services.
  • Housing Resources: supply furniture and household items for client family, if needed.
