GLEN ELLYN – Bridge Communities in Glen Ellyn received a $20,000 grant earlier this month from The DuPage Community Foundation to help support the organization's Employment Program.

Bridge Communities' Employment Program provides adults in its Transitional Housing Program with job readiness and employment counseling.

The grant was awarded at a special distribution breakfast on June 12 at Glen Oak Country Club in Glen Ellyn.

Since it was founded, The DuPage Community Foundation has awarded more than $16 million in grants to nonprofit agencies that serve the residents of DuPage County and beyond.
