The Palatine-based Bridge Youth and Family Services is asking the public to help match a $10,000 grant from an anonymous foundation to assist children dealing with traumatic experiences. Executive Director Gregg Stockey said that to receive the grant, the Bridge, which aims to help young people and families achieve social and emotional health, must first raise $10,000 from new or increased donations. That money would allow the Bridge to provide more than 200 counseling sessions for people in the Northwest suburbs. Visit bridgeyouth.org to donate and for more information.
