About Homes for the Brave

Homes for the Brave is a Transitional living facility serves veterans who have been referred from Fairfield County homeless shelters and veterans involved in treatment at the VA Connecticut Healthcare System who have chronic health, mental health or substance abuse issues. The facility serves a limited number of homeless who are non-veterans and in need of transitional housing and who demonstrate motivation for rehabilitation. The transitional program is a psycho-educational and psycho-social rehabilitation program that assists people in learning the skills needed to transition back into the community. Support services include substance abuse groups, life-skills coaching, mental health counseling and treatment, vocational training, and medical and clinical services. Case managers work with VA case managers to assist veterans in skills development and money management to enable residents to save for apartments of their own.
