  • History of Bridge Communities

    When Mark Milligan and Bob Wahlgren rented the first apartment for a family experiencing homelessness, they really did not know that act of kindness would take their lives down a new road. More than thirty years later, they would be joined on this road by many who would volunteer to help others in need. Together, all would journey the road toward a better life.
