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.

A personal message from Susan Hacker

This year marks the 7th year I'll participate in Sleep Out Saturday.

Sleep Out Saturday is a community-wide event to raise awareness about family homelessness.

According to Housing Action Illinois, the state’s leading housing advocacy groups, there are as many as half a million renter households in Illinois at risk of eviction because of the economic impact of COVID-19.

Because of you, Bridge Communities will provide100+ DuPage County families experiencing homelessness with a home and a new start.

Will you support Sleep Out Saturday?

When you give to Bridge's Sleep Out Saturday event, you provide the parenting classes, healing counseling, life-skills mentoring, and financial coaching Bridge families need to break the cycle of poverty and homelessness.

Just $35 is enough to provide a family with safe housing for a night. And, you'll give them the tools they need so that they'll never be homeless again!

Thank you!
