A personal message from Juls & Pamela Paulsen

As you probably know, Juls is very committed to Bridge Communities’ mission, along with the rest of our family. Bridge’s program is a life-saver for so many homeless families living in our communities.

This is the 4th year that Juls has participated in Sleep Out Saturday. It is a night that gives people the chance to learn about family homelessness and sleep outside to experience just a fraction of the suffering of homeless families.

It is shocking that nearly 1,700 homeless kids attend schools just in DuPage County. These kids have all the hopes and dreams as all kids, and that without the stability of home they have little chance in reaching their dreams.

Every family is unique in how they became homeless, and have different obstacles to overcome, and special dreams for their future.

With your support, Bridge Communities can provide a path out of homeless for these families and children. You can help a homeless family begin anew and achieve their dreams!
