With an emphasis on Veterans, we provide the housing and services necessary to help homeless individuals return to a productive and meaningful life.
Since opening its doors in 2002, Applied Behavioral Rehabilitation Institute, Inc. (ABRI), doing business as Homes for the Brave has provided safe housing, vocational training, job placement, and life skills coaching to help more than 1,000 individuals–primarily Veterans–leave homelessness behind.
ABRI/Homes for the Brave is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit that operates four programs based in Bridgeport, CT:
A great need exists for the housing, case management, and vocational services these programs provide. On a given night in the United States, approximately 50,000 Veterans are without homes. An estimated 4,000 individuals are homeless in Connecticut, and roughly 200 of these men and women are Veterans.1
Housing organizations like ABRI provide a safe place for Veterans and other individuals experiencing homelessness to get back on their feet and to work toward securing employment that will return them to self-sufficiency.
