On November 6th 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 Rachel Benning

Bridge Communities provides so many essential services for homeless and at risk of homelessness families. Each year I am reminded of the impact Bridge Communities has on our community through Sleep Out Saturday. To have experienced SOS myself previously, I know the feeling of not having a safe place to sleep at night, in the cold, and with a child!

Thankfully Bridge Communities can provide a family with financial litteracy, mentorship, case management, employment and education counseling, mental health services, nutrition services, and much much more. With their services, a family can break the chains of homelessness and graduate to their own home outside of the program.

Will you consider donating $35 to help house 1 family for 1 night? Every amount counts and you can help me reach my goal of housing a family for 2 months!

Thank you for your support of homeless families and kids through Bridge Communities!
