Would you like to make a difference?

There are many ways you can help homeless children get back on the road to self-sufficiency.  Please consider becoming a volunteer at one of Bridge Communities' Learning Resource Centers in 4 convenient locations in DuPage County.

Learning Resource Center

Get involved by volunteering at one of Bridge Communities community-based Learning Resource Centers (LRC).  Volunteers are needed to help monitor the LRCs during designated evening hours.  No special skills are required - just a desire to interact with elementary and middle school age children in fun and academic activities, and the availability for volunteer twice per month for 2-3 hours at a time.  To volunteer, you must be over 18 years old and out of high school.  LRCs are located in Glendale Heights, Glen Ellyn, Naperville and Westmont and are open on designated evenings. 

Change the life of a homeless child! For more information about volunteering at an LRC, please contact Mary Slade at

The vast majority of our families are headed by single moms. Their average age is 29. Last year, while at least 68% of those who entered our program have at least some postsecondary school if not higher education degrees, their average income at entry was $14/hour - well below a living wage.
