A personal message from Mary Zienty

Bridge Communities is a transitional housing program for homeless families. We provide safe housing, mentoring, employment services, children's services and professional case management. Bridge is a comprehensive program that has been providing hope and housing for 28 years. I have been fortunate enough to see this holistic program at work in the lives of many families and the impact and transformations are truly inspiring! Please join me in my Sleep Out Saturday fundraiser so that we can change lives together. Thank you!!
