Make a donation to Aidan & Amy


On November 7th 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!

A personal message from Aidan & Amy

As most of you 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. We listen and we learn from their experiences.

We learned that nearly 2,000 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 of 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 considering a donation in honor of Aidan and me as we participate by sleeping in our car on November 7th. We will continue to listen and learn from those that live this experience in their daily lives and give them our respect, our love, and our best efforts to help.
