Bridge Buys Building in Westmont

Bridge Communities Apartment Building

Bridge Communities helps families settle into permanent housing

We’re excited to announce the recent purchase of a six-flat apartment building in the Village of Westmont.  By purchasing the building, we will be able to provide homes for six homeless families who are crossing the bridge from homelessness to self-sufficiency through our Transitional Housing Program.

Already, two families have moved into Bridge Communities’ new apartment building in Westmont.  In addition to housing, these client families are benefiting from services that include employment counseling and coaching, educational opportunities, tutoring, and financial planning through our multi-faceted Transitional Housing Program.

At Bridge Communities, we continue to forge partnerships with local Program Partners in Westmont and the surrounding area to provide support and services to our client families.  Program Partners are churches and other community organizations that volunteer to partner with us in our mission to transition families out of homeless into self-sufficiency and permanent housing.

Bridge Communities’ president Mark Milligan had this to say: “Identifying a new building to add to our inventory of homes for the families we serve is a great step forward.  We are very pleased to be able to serve six more families in Westmont with the purchase of these apartments.  The more homes we can make available, the more lives we can touch and families we can help move toward independence.”
