TechBridge supports dozens of nonprofits focused on ending homelessness and hunger. It’s a cause that’s central to our mission and dear to our hearts.

Over half a million people in this country are homeless on a given night, and nearly fifty million Americans are at risk of hunger. We can reduce those  numbers if we try.

You’ll find no shortage of opportunities to work with foodbanks and shelters this month, but this week is a little special:

November 12-20 is National Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week, sponsored by the National Coalition for the Homeless and the National Student Campaign Against Hunger and Homelessness. More than 700 community organizations, churches, high schools, college groups, and others nationwide will come together this week to draw attention to poverty in their communities.
