A personal message from Erich Hene

I am sleeping out tomorrow night, Saturday October 22, 2016 with Christ Church of Oak Brook middle school group (COW) to raise awareness about family homelessness and funds for Bridge Communities' Transitional Housing program in DuPage county. I'm hoping you'll want to donate some money to this worthy cause. Thank you very much for your kind consideration and support!

    “I am so proud of you. You are shining a light on a truly awful and dismal reality for so many. "homeless" and "not having a home" are not always one in the same. It's difficult for Most people who are blessed with a roof over their heads to have the compassion, understanding, and the empathy required to be a part of the solution. I hope this experience offers you a glimpse of the lives of those less fortunate than U”
