Night of Hope: One Community

Make a donation to Margo Matthew


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!

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

A personal message from Margo Matthew

Hi Everyone!

Thank you for taking time to read my message.

There is a lot going on in our world where an unprecedented number of individuals and families are in harms way, without a place to live safely or call home. It is devastating and is a basic human right.

While we try to help in many ways from afar, I also need to help make a difference in the local community.

I am once again raising awareness and funds for families experiencing homelessness so families in our own community can be safe, secure and stable.

Your gift in any amount will help make it happen.

Thank you, so much,


Margo Matthew
