We offer a home to those who have protected ours. Whenever a veteran doesn’t have any place to go, it’s an honor to give them a place to rest their head, a hot meal, help finding employment, and a fresh start.
The Salvation Army of Greater Birmingham is committed to standing beside those who stood up for us by offering the Veterans Bridge Program. The program, which is a partnership between The Salvation Army and the Department of Veteran Affairs, provides veterans with the services necessary to transition from homelessness to permanent supportive housing. The services include case management, resource referral, coordination of medical, mental health, and addiction services as well as education services, housing placement and job training. Up to 10 Veterans normally stay for 90 days in dorms and are provided with 3 meals and finances for laundry. The program also provides in-house activities including weekly outings, gym membership, bicycle and book clubs, games and monthly trips. If you know of a veteran who is struggling and needs a hand, please call 205-328-2420.
