VETERAN SERVICES TO HELP BREVARD’S VETS IN NEED

Bridges proudly operates residential and employment services to help disabled veterans in our community.  Our goal is to support and stabilize them so they can find employment, affordable housing, and live independently again.  These services include:

PATRIOT HOUSE

In 2012, Bridges opened a transitional home for disabled and homeless Veterans called the Patriot House. The Patriot House is a 24-month program designed to help Veterans transition back into the community by providing them stability while they search for employment and affordable housing.

The home has an updated kitchen, flat-screen TV, pool table, and a beautiful outdoor space.  All bathrooms are handicapped accessible. While there, veterans achieve a successful transition with a variety of services, such as:

  • Room & Board at The Patriot House
  • Evaluations
  • Transportation
  • Daily Living Skills Training

Patriot House is funded under the VA Grant Per Diem program and the generous support of our local community.  This home is located in Melbourne, FL near the BCC campus and can house up to 6 male Veterans at one time.

EMPLOYMENT ASSISTANCE FOR VETERANS

At Bridges, we provide custom Employment Services tailored to each individual’s skills and needs. Upon completion of the Veterans Transitional program we can provide employment assistance as needed. We are want to insure that each of our Veterans has the skills and tools they need in order to successfully complete the program so we tailor our services to individual circumstances.
