A personal message from Aidan & Amy

As you probably know, my family is very committed to Bridge Communities’ mission. Bridge’s program is a life-saver for so many homeless families living in our communities.

My family has had the honor to serve these families through our participation in Sleep Out Saturday, a night that gives us the chance to learn about family homelessness and sleep outside to experience just a fraction of the suffering of homeless families. We spend the night listening and learning from their experiences.

We learned that nearly 1,700 homeless kids attend schools in DuPage County. We learned that these kids have all the hopes and dreams as all kids, and that without the stability of home they have little chance in reaching their dreams.

We learned that every Bridge family is unique. They all became homeless for a different reason, have different obstacles to overcome, and different dreams for their future.

We learned that Bridge Communities coupled with each of you can provide a path out of homeless for these families and children. You can help a homeless family achieve their dreams.

Thank you for your consideration of helping Aidan and I reach our goal and help a homeless family begin anew.

Sincerely,
Aidan & Amy
