Who We Are

Through the help of our program partners and supporters, Bridge Communities provides free transitional housing to 100+ DuPage County families each year. During the two years each family spends in our program, they are able to save money, learn budgeting skills, and obtain better employment, so they can live self-sufficiently once they graduate.

History of Bridge Communities

When Mark Milligan and Bob Wahlgren rented that first apartment for a family in need, they really did not know this act of kindness would take their lives down a whole new road. Decades later, they would be joined on this road by many who would volunteer to help others in need. Together, all would journey the road toward a better life.
