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 Susan Hacker

This year marks the 8th year I'll participate in Sleep Out Saturday.

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

Nationally, as well as within Illinois and DuPage County the number of families facing housing insecurities is on the rise due to poverty and lack of affordable housing.

Nearly 50% of renters in DuPage County are cost burdened (spend over 30% of their income on rent). A single mom with two children would need to earn $23.09/hour at a full-time job to make $4000/month to not be housing burdened.

Because of you, Bridge Communities will provide 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 each family in Bridge with safe housing, a dedicated team of volunteer mentors, a wide array of education, employment, children’s programs and connections to community services for the entire family.

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!
