Bridge Communities
November 30, 2010

I stared volunteering for Bridge about two years ago. My husband and I were invited to a Bridge Garden Party by a personal friend who at the time was also member of the Bridge Board. Until that time I had not heard of Bridge. Since I was retired and had time on my hands I offered to volunteer. I have since become a member of the Development Committee and have been volunteering in the office from time to time. Bridge made me aware of the homelessness in Du Page county which I'm sure many folks find hard to believe. While working in the office, I've seen women come in with their children in tow looking for help. The staff/volunteers/ tutors are caring and dedicated to seeing each and every client succeeds. The screening process to become a client of Bridge is very extensive and a strong commitment of the clients to the program is required. There is a lot of hard work by both Bridge and the clients to ensure a successful outcome of the program. Bridge Communities is a wonderful non-profit organization that is dedicated to helping the homeless.
