Bridge Communities also utilizes the Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) through DuPage County’s Continuum of Care. Bridge strives to comply with all policies and procedures related to HMIS, which can be found here.

During the 2019 school year, 1,899 DuPage County students (birth to 12th grade) were identified as lacking a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence. This includes children living in shelters, cars, and most commonly those children sharing housing with others due to loss of housing or economic hardship. This is how homelessness is defined for our school children under the McKinney Vento Homeless Assistance Act.
