The BBQ and Bridge

Whether participating in the BBQ competition, listening to live music or enjoying the vendors' hot barbecue you'll be relaxing with family and friends knowing you're helping a wonderful cause.
Mission:  The mission of Bridge Communities is to transition homeless families to self-sufficiency by working with partners to provide mentoring, housing, and supportive services.
Vision: Our vision is a community where all families are healthy, financially stable, and living in affordable housing.
Values: Each of our core values—Partnership, Empowerment, Integrity, Respect, Hope — apply to  everyone involved in Bridge Communities – clients, mentors, program partners, volunteers, donors, board members, staff and community.
The Glen Ellyn Backyard BBQ is an all-volunteer organization, originally formed by like-minded people who love barbecue and desired to give back to their community.
