Organization of the Month
In 2015, Bridge Communities was listed as a Top 20 Charities in Chicago by Chicago Magazine and in 2016 it earned the Neighborhood Builder Award from Bank of America. Bridge Communities was founded in 1988 after founders Mark Milligan and Bob Wahlgren met families in shelters while volunteering.
"Everyone at Bridge has made my children feel welcomed. The staff and mentors go out of their way to promote a positive environment so my children can feel comfortable and succeed. The organization truly cares about their client families, and you can see it in their actions and support.” - a Bridge Community client.
