It’s All Because of You

This week, Bridge Communities provided a home and supportive services to a homeless mom and her son who had been living apart – the son with his aunt and the mom shuffling between a motel and her car.  The car, in fact, was given to her by Bridge Communities before she even entered Bridge’s Transitional Housing Program, because, as she waited for a Bridge apartment to become available, she had no way get to and from work.  To get to her job, she’d walk, take a bus or ride her bike.  Today, she’s reunited with her son, living in a Bridge apartment, working hard at her job, and thanking people like you for all of this.

Thank you.

This week, we heard from a donor who had a discussion with his wife about their giving.  They examined their contributions and carefully narrowed their scope to only include organizations dedicated to transformative – not reactive – change.  Bridge Communities made the top of their list, because of the hard work and dedication volunteers like you put into making Bridge’s Transitional Housing Program a transformative change agent in the lives of homeless families in DuPage County.

Thank you.

This month, we are welcoming hundreds of volunteers, who will descend upon four of our apartment buildings and the surrounding grounds to perform massive spring clean ups.  Because of volunteers like you, our client families will come home to clean, refreshed buildings and neighborhoods.

Thank you.

This week, a close-knit group of case managers, volunteer mentors and friends will come together to celebrate one of our Bridge moms becoming U.S. Citizen.  Bridge Communities helped her realize her dream.

Thank you.

It’s National Volunteer Week.  Here at Bridge Communities, we are grateful for our volunteers every day of the year.  But this week, we’d like to make sure you know just how much we appreciate you volunteering your time, talent, and treasure for the homeless families in Bridge Communities’ Transitional Housing Program.  The phenomenal change that happens in these homeless families’ lives…it’s all because of you!

THANK YOU!
