Sleep Out Saturday, November 4, 2023

Night of Hope: One Community

Make a donation to St. Matthew UCC Confirmation Group


On November 4th more than 1,000 children, teens and adults will spend the night sleeping outside in tents, boxes, or cars or doubled up inside their homes without a bed to call their own, all to raise awareness about family homelessness and funds for Bridge Communities' Transitional Housing Program.

Your help is needed now more than ever. With your help, Bridge Communities will transition over 100 families to self-sufficiency by working with community partners to provide mentoring, housing, and supportive services. Please give to demonstrate your commitment to helping homeless families build a bridge to a brighter future!

Donate now

Give with confidence Nearly 90% of your donation will benefit the families in our transitional housing program.
