Community Bridges, Inc. (CBI) Stands with Veterans


Community Bridges, Inc. (CBI) Veterans Program provides outreach, navigation, and housing support for both service-connected and non-service-connected veterans. The CBI Veterans Team link Veterans to the State Veterans Administration to determine eligibility of services to support ongoing wellness. Our goal is to improve housing and income stability, along with making meaningful connections and engaging in community activities. This permanently sets the path for long-term vibrancy in the community.


The CBI Process

Peer Navigators provide outreach services to engage Veterans experiencing homelessness and work with them to connect to available services such as Emergency Shelter and Supportive Services for Veteran Families Rapid Rehousing. Veterans may volunteer to transition to temporary and then permanent housing, via the Bridge system.


CBI Services

Working alongside Participants through the application process for Veterans Administration (VA) services is just the beginning. We continue to work with Veterans to provide the services they need such as:

  • Employment assistance
  • VA and other application aid for housing
  • Primary medical care such as wellness and prevention visits
  • Medical, behavioral and recovery care and counseling


CBI Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) Program

The CBI Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) is an initiative of the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to promote housing stability among very low-income Veteran families who reside in, or are transitioning to, permanent housing. The VA partners with Community Bridges, Inc. and other community-based organizations and local non-profit agencies across the United States to provide rapid rehousing, rapid resolution, and homeless prevention services through evidence-based practices and case management strategies to achieve housing stability.

The CBI SSVF is a Housing First program and is a part of our commitment to provide resources that support the stability and advancement of all Veterans. Through our array of services, we hope to enrich our communities by providing solutions to homelessness, unemployment, and mental health crisis.
