Clinical Program

 

HFTB has recognized a need to expand clinical expertise to provide mental health services on-site for residential clients and for homeless Veterans utilizing the HFTB Veterans Service Center. Many of the Veterans we serve are either ineligible for clinical services at the VA or find it difficult to travel to VA medical campuses in West Haven or Newington on a regular basis for treatment. In January 2019 the Homes for the Brave Clinical Program started and employed a licensed psychologist as the Chief Clinical Officer (CCO) to provide oversight of all clinical programs and address this gap in services.  Clinical programing will include access to recovery-oriented individual and group therapy to address the mental health and substance abuse needs of homeless Veterans in the Bridgeport area.
