Social Service Agency of the month is Bridge Communities

 Bridge partners with dozens of local churches, community groups, and businesses to provide a comprehensive program for homeless families in DuPage County.
The mission of Bridge Communities is to transition homeless families to self-sufficiency by working with partners to provide mentoring, housing, and supportive services.
