Make a donation to Jen Bystry


On November 5th 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!

Nearly 90% of your donation will benefit the families in our transitional housing program.

A personal message from Jen Bystry

Hi friends,

Please consider helping me reach my goal of housing a family for two months. These are hard-working parents who need something we've all needed in at least one point of our lives -- a little help and guidance.

Thank you for considering providing a generational solution to poverty, homelessness, and abuse!
