What We Do

Veterans Bridge Home is a Charlotte-based organization that connects Veterans and their families, in any state of transition, to the community. Through our network of partners, we help Veterans navigate employment, create social connections, and settle their families. We look at the whole Veteran and connect them to the resources needed to be successful and thriving leaders in our community.

IMPACT OF COVID-19 - SPECIFIC NEEDS:

How We Are Impacted: Due to the limitations on large gatherings, we have cancelled our annual Lunch and Lead fundraising event.

Financial Donations Requested: Cancelling this event leaves a $60,000 hole in our annual budget. Even though the event will not happen, our work continues. We still must pay staff to serve the Veterans and families who find themselves without a safety net during this unusual and uncertain time. Helping mitigate this loss of anticipated revenue will ensure every family we meet this year receives the best support possible.

Specific Volunteer Needs: Also in the wake of this pandemic response, we cancelled all of our reoccurring community engagement and volunteer events. We will be asking for volunteers to call the Veterans and families we have served to make sure they are doing well, and let them know that we still have staff standing by to assist.

Interesting Info

There are over 150,000 veterans that call the Charlotte area home; over 6,000 of them have served since 9/11.
Returning service members do not know where to go to identify and access resources.
Veterans Bridge Home fills that gap.
