Make a donation to Andrea Carradus


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!

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

A personal message from Andrea Carradus

This picture is of me with Bridge's founder, Mark Milligan. His dedication to serving homeless families, his kindness and humor, and his humility are an inspiration to me. Bridge has been connecting homeless families to a better future since 1988 - this is my 4th year sleeping out in support of Bridge and the families we serve and I hope to be sleeping out for another 30 years. Please consider a pledge of $35 - this amount provides one night of housing for one family!
