Sleep Out Saturday, Virtually Together: One Night, One Community




Click here to register for Sleep Out Saturday!

On November 7, 2020, over 1,000 community members will help homeless families in DuPage County cross the bridge from homelessness to self-sufficiency through Sleep Out Saturday, Bridge Communities’ largest fundraising and awareness-building event.  

Join us November 7, 2020, when individuals, families, faith communities, businesses and community groups will sleep out again in backyards and driveways throughout DuPage County. 

Funds raised through Sleep Out Saturday will directly benefit Bridge Communities’ Transitional Housing Program, which provides homeless families in DuPage County with shelter, case management, employment search and assistance, education and tutoring, counseling, and car donations.  Since 1988, Bridge has helped over 850 families transition from homelessness to self-sufficiency, financial stability and permanent housing.

In addition to fundraising, Sleep Out Saturday serves to raise awareness about the invisible homeless – homeless families – and the lack of affordable housing in DuPage County.  Bridge Communities not only provides the Transitional Housing Program but also serves as a tireless advocate for homeless families and for affordable housing options.

 Please help us make Sleep Out Saturday the biggest yet by providing DuPage homeless families affordable housing, access basic needs, mentoring support and so much more.  To learn more about ways to help Bridge Communities in its mission to help homeless families cross the bridge to self-sufficiency, contact Margo Matthew at margo.matthew@bridgecommunities.org
