Giving Back

ABC Gives Back to the Community

Bridgeway Behavioral Health

Bridgeway Behavioral Health

Each year at Christmas ABC “adopts” children whose holidays would be empty without our support. We rely on the generosity of our families to provide gifts for these less fortunate children. We take great pride in the response our families give.

Bridgeway strives to improve the mental, spiritual and physical health of the individuals in the St. Charles County Community. Bridgeway is recognized nationally and locally for its innovation and excellence, and has earned a national reputation as leader in the field of domestic violence and assault prevention and counseling services. 

 

Homes for Heroes

Homes for Heroes

Homes for Heroes® is a company that affiliates with Realtors®, lenders and other real estate-related service providers who offer substantial rebates and discounts to the Heroes who serve our nation and its communities every day. Our Heroes include military personnel, firefighters, law enforcement officers and others who make our communities a better place to live.

This program was created after the tragic events of 9/11 as a “Thank you” to the men and women who have given so much. Heroes across the country register on our website every day looking for the savings. We match them with Homes for Heroes® Affiliates in their area. Homes for Heroes® is now expanding its discounts beyond the home buying and selling process with our Friends of Heroes® program.

 

Sts. Joachim and Ann Parish

Saints Joachim and Ann Parish

The Parish of Sts. Joachim and Ann provide programs for individuals, families and children in the tri-county area of St. Charles, Lincoln, and Warren. Services are available for those who earn at or below 50% of the state median income. The work the parish does is heavily supported by the community with more than 100,000 volunteer hours per year in addition to donations of material, labor, food and monetary contributions.

ABC contributes to their efforts through canned food drives held biannually at all of our locations. These drives not only help provide relief for those in need, but also help to instill a sense of giving and philanthropy in our students, as they learn about the importance of sharing with those who are less fortunate.
