Bridge Communities publishes an annual report every year.  View the Bridge Communities annual report.

During the 2019 school year, 1,899 DuPage County students (birth to 12th grade) were identified as lacking a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence. This includes children living in shelters, cars, and most commonly those children sharing housing with others due to loss of housing or economic hardship. This is how homelessness is defined for our school children under the McKinney Vento Homeless Assistance Act.
