About Homes For The Brave and ABRI
Since opening our doors in 2002, ABRI/Homes for the Brave has provided housing, vocational training, and life skills coaching to help individuals leave homelessness behind. To date, we have worked with more than 1,100 men and women, most of whom are Veterans.
Applied Behavioral Rehabilitation Institute, Inc. (ABRI), doing business as Homes for the Brave, is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit. ABRI/Homes for the Brave operates four programs: Homes for the Brave, Waldorf House, Veterans Service Center, and Female Soldiers: Forgotten Heroes, Connecticut’s first and only transitional housing program exclusively for homeless female Veterans and their children.
A great need exists for housing programs and support services like ours. On any given night, 40,000 United States Veterans find themselves homeless, and another 1.4 million are at-risk of homelessness due to a lack of affordable housing, financial resources, and support.1
With the help of our community, we will continue to uphold our mission of helping Connecticut’s Veterans and other individuals experiencing homelessness to return to meaningful, productive lives. We hope that you will join us as we serve the men and women who have served us all.
