Make a donation to Donnavieve Smith


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!

A personal message from Donnavieve Smith

My friends and I will be camping out on the rooftop of my building for Sleep Out Saturday! Please support our efforts by making a generous contribution!

The pandemic has made it even more difficult for our homeless brothers and sisters to find adequate shelter and food. It is more important than ever for us to let them know that we see them and that we care! Please do all that you can to support this worthy cause! Peace and blessings to you and your family! Take care and stay safe!
