Homeless in DuPage

Bridge Builders is a group of DuPage County residents who work with homeless families and children in Bridge Communities transitional housing, providing mentoring and activities.  Last week they announced they’d awarded $1,000 college scholarships to eight formerly homeless teens.  (Newstips has covered a school curriculum on homelessness developed by the Bridge, as well as a community sleepout to highlight homelessness in the western suburbs.)

Tonight they’re holding their annual fundraiser for Bridge Communities — there’s no admission, but a donation is requested; there’s a silent auction and cash bar along with food, music, and dancing.  It runs from 7:30 p.m. to midnight at College of DuPage’s McAninch Arts Center, 425 Fawell Bvd, Glen Ellyn.
