Review for Bridge Communities, Glen Ellyn, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am with one of the community partners helping provide mentors and financial support for Bridge families. Our church is much enriched by this relationship, as our volunteers are able to work with families striving to regain solid financial footing knowing that all of the professional resources Bridge provides are available to them. While the mentors visit their families weekly for budget guidance and emotional support, Bridge offers case management, tutoring, job assistance, and counseling for the clients. They are also the landlord of the apartments and secure a car for guest families as well. They screen the applicants to try and find families who have a desire and potential for success in the program. We would not be able to offer Transitional Housing assistance without them.

Role:  Volunteer & I coordinate the program for our church which entails recruiting new mentors as needed, holding monthly support meetings for mentors to de-brief and discuss issues they're facing, and helping secure funds. .
