Make a donation to Mark Milligan


On November 7th more than 1,000 children, teens and adults will spend the night sleeping outside in tents, boxes, or cars or doubled up inside their homes without a bed to call their own, all to raise awareness about family homelessness and funds for Bridge Communities' Transitional Housing Program.

Your help is needed now more than ever. With your help, Bridge Communities will transition over 100 families to self-sufficiency by working with community partners to provide mentoring, housing, and supportive services. Please give to demonstrate your commitment to helping homeless families build a bridge to a brighter future!

Nearly 90% of your donation will benefit the families in our transitional housing program.

A personal message from Mark Milligan

This is just such a stressful year with all of our fears of the corona virus. Just imagine if you needed to face this pandemic without the safety of clean, safe housing. That happens to people, but you can help. Support of Bridge Communities brings peace of mind to some Mom and her children. Thanks for helping! Mark

    “About 28 years ago, Mark Milligan and everyone at Bridge Communities (and Carolyn Milligan and Catholic Charities) helped me and my son. Their kindness, selflessness, and compassion are second to none. And I am forever grateful to them for what they have done and continue to do.”
