Helping homeless people in the community

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. We work with existing organizations in the area.

LINK and Bridge Communities
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.
We partner with Bridge Communities to provide mentoring and financial assistance to client families. 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.

Members of LINK have participated in PADS, a local DuPage County ministry providing overnight housing and other services to the homeless. We were profoundly impacted by this experience.
We are seeking to discern God's will for Elmhurst CRC in further addressing the very real needs of the homeless in DuPage County.
