  • Thanks for Joining us at the 3rd Annual A Chair Affair!

    It was one of the most unique parties of the year and an opportunity to find one-of-a-kind artwork for your home! Returning for its third year, Bridge Communities combined artistic talent with a great cause to present A Chair Affair in the Naperville community on June 9. From May 19-June 9, the 20 chairs, stools and benches redesigned by local artisans were displayed in storefronts throughout Downtown Naperville, and concluded with a high-energy gala & auction event at Wentz Hall.

  • Bridge Communities' Campaign for Children

    At Bridge, we believe it is through the children that we have the greatest chance of breaking the cycle of poverty and homelessness. If you can give them hope in their future, belief in themselves and better ways of problem-solving, then they'll have a greater chance of future success. Will you join us in our commitment to Break the Cycle of Homelessness?
