  • Bridge Builders

    Founded in 2002 by local residents that take a hands-on approach to enhancing the lives of Bridge Communities' client families, particularly the lives of the children in the Transitional Housing program.  The Bridge Builders host family focused activities and fund-raising events to raise funds for the Auto Donation program, college scholarships, extra-curricular children's activities and women's programs.

  • Glen Ellyn Backyard BBQ Cook-Off 

    The Glen Ellyn Backyard BBQ Cook-Off just celebrated its seventh year, and it was better than ever!  Next year, join us once again for great tasting BBQ, a bags tournament, kids' 'piglet playland,' live blues bands and awards presentations.  All proceeds benefit the homeless families being served in Bridge's Transitional Housing Program.
