Being a combat veteran,
it is hard to transition back into society.
Whenever you train people to be warriors,
you can’t expect them to come back and not be a warrior anymore.
There is a process you have to go through to realize that
it’s not your responsibility anymore.
Most veterans return home feeling like an outsider
and thinking that civilians have grown numb to the terrors of war.
What is Bridging the Gap Foundation?
Bridging the Gap Foundation is a non-profit organization
that helps veterans transition back into society.
We are all non-paid volunteers; some of us are also veterans.
We work directly with veterans on a one-on-one basis
and provide food, shelter, education, counselling and more.
No red tape, no long tedious process, no confusing paperwork.
We just help.
If we have the space available in one of our residential centers,
a veteran is invited to come live at one of those centers that very same day.
