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 Karen Wells

The Special K Team is Sleeping Out again! Karen, Kirsten, and Kim are sleeping out again this year to raise both awareness and funds to support the courageous families we serve at Bridge. We did it together last year and doing it again this year to raise at least $2000 to support a family at Bridge for 2 months of housing and supportive services. We will be sleeping out both on November 6 and December 4.

Every $35 or more contribution will provide one night of stable housing for a family experiencing homelessness.

Please help us reach our goal to help families move from homelessness to hope.

God Bless- Karen, Kirsten and Kim
