Bridge Communities

Bridge Communities is committed to transforming the lives of homeless families in DuPage County by improving their education and employment opportunities and strengthening their financial and life skills. To alleviate the stress that families face when piecing together childcare, Bridge provides scholarships to client families so their children can participate in activities that keep them safe and engaged after school and during the summer months while their parents are working. These scholarships can be for YMCA and sports camps, art and nature camps, and other recreational programming and day camps that are offered by various local agencies and Park District. These positive early life experiences have a profound impact throughout a child’s life, help to ignite their curiosity, and help to counteract the toxic stress and trauma of being homeless.
