LINK (Love, Interact, Neighbor, Kneel) is a ministry at Elmhurst CRC through which we reach out to the homeless and others in need in the community. Homelessness is a significant problem, and families need to learn to be self-sufficient. We work with Bridge Communities to address this issue.
We partner with Bridge Communities to provide mentoring and financial support for an apartment to client families. Mentors form a close relationship with the families to help them get out of debt, make good financial decisions, find a good job, and with other life issues that inevitably come up. After two years, the families are prepared to live on their own.
Bridge Communities is a grassroots, non-profit organization in DuPage County that provides transitional housing and other programs to those at risk of homelessness, with a goal of self-sufficiency. Bridge owns the apartment and provides us with mentor training, a case manager who works closely with the mentors, and other support services.
We believe that God blesses our efforts to reach out to families in need. We are blessed in return. We ask for your prayers as we look forward to future opportunities.
