From duty to daily life, reuniting veterans with their community.

Bridging Heroes: From Service to Community featuring Steven Cole

Military life is different. To fully understand, you would need to be a Veteran. Veterans selflessly and fiercely protect the lives we know—the lives many of us take for granted. There’s a unique camaraderie in the military: one for all and all for one. One might think that such a bond between the military and the civilians they protect would ensure a supportive welcome home. However, the reality is often quite different.

The transition to civilian life after the regimen and sacrifice of military duty can be daunting. Yet, in the Carolinas, there exists a strong, vibrant, and caring community that is getting it right. At the heart of this community is Veteran’s Bridge Home, a nonprofit dedicated to connecting Veterans and their families to the resources they need during any state of transition. At its mission’s core, Veteran’s Bridge Home assists Veterans in navigating employment opportunities, fostering social connections, and settling their families, all with the support of an extensive network of partners.

In this episode of Raise Nation Radio, Steven Cole, Vice President of Development, joins us to share how Veteran’s Bridge Home helps Veterans successfully pursue their dreams and enriches the community with their leadership and dedication. Tune in to learn about Steven’s 20 years of service in the Army and his journey to Veteran’s Bridge Home, the organization’s achievements and success with programming and development, and how communities can become more welcoming and livable for returning Veterans and their families.
