Bridging the Gap Between Veteran and Civilian

BROTHERHOOD BRIDGE FOUNDATION

Fueled by love of country and belief that WE THE PEOPLE can and will create solutions, BROTHERHOOD BRIDGE is a COMBAT VETERAN FOUNDED 501(c)(3) dedicated to successfully integrating Veterans back into civilian life by working in PARTNERSHIP to mobilize the power of people and resources dedicated to relevant military-to-civilian transition.  

Awareness to Action

NO MORE EXCUSES

We are not here to defend or attack the statistical Veteran suicide numbers or demand awareness, place blame, point fingers or shun accountability.  The time for action and solutions is now, because later is too late.


  • Suicide is not a solution;
  • Surviving day-to-day is not living;
  • Reliance on alcohol, drugs or chemicals (legal or illegal) is not a solution;
  • Anger destroys people, relationships, families;
  • Emotional scars are just as devastating as suicidal scars;
  • Adrenaline and addiction to chaos must be fed in a constructive way;
  • Reconnect to the lost sense of purpose and brotherhood;
  • There is a cause and effect to every decision;
  • Band of Brothers: We need to do a better job of looking after each other;
  • Break the silence. Stories need to be told and heard;
  • Defeat the stigmas of seeking help. Healing takes courage;
  • Isolated in the darkness of your own head is the worst place to be. 

There comes a tipping point in every life, in that moment, you must choose your direction. Our tipping point …     

RAISING PEOPLE, NOT FUNDS

There are countless Veterans who are struggling, and numerous organizations who are reaching out, but the one missing piece of the bridge is YOU.  In a world that feels injured, go beyond awareness and be part of the healing. 


BROTHERHOOD BRIDGE advocates direct personal engagement to combat self-destructive Veteran behaviors.WE NEED YOU NOT YOUR MONEY to help us close the gap. Stop the suicide epidemic by embracing the fellowship of humanity.

TEAM WALK OF LIFE

Veterans and communities need one another.  Veterans and their families need more than what any individual person or organization can offer.  Veterans bring skills and capabilities to communities.  Building networks and partnerships is necessary, but it takes hard work. There are organizations who are reaching out and making a difference, but to be sustainable we all need each other to support, encourage and bring together Veterans, communities and trusted organizations who understand the struggle, have pertinent training and provide applicable assistance for successful military-to-civilian transition.


You can make a difference.  Be part of the solution. TEAM UP with  integration focused organizations, communities and like-minded individuals to engage Veterans in your community ONE STEP at a time.
