A personal message from Chad Pedigo

Friends, I am pledging to spend one night sleeping outside in the cold without the comforts of a warm home and bed to help provide 3 months of housing to one homeless family. Please help me turn this dream into a reality by making a pledge in support of my Sleep Out on Saturday November 4th. I have personally seen the difference a transitional home with Bridge Communities can offer to the more than 100 adults and 200 children who are sleeping in Bridge housing tonight and working with mentors, tutors, staff, and volunteers to transform their lives and the futures of their children. Thank you for being a part of this difference, and helping to make this amazing transition possible. I simply could not do it without you!
