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

During the 2018 school year, 1,932 (up from 1,794 in 2017) homeless students (birth to 12th grade) were identified and educated in DuPage County schools.  There was a 50% increase in homeless students between 2013 and 2018.
