Of the 2.3 million veterans who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan, six thousand are currently living in Mecklenburg County. An estimated seven to ten thousand more will be moving here in the next twenty-four months.
Charlotte Bridge Home (CBH) helps veterans successfully transition home after military service by identifying their education, employment and healthcare needs and connecting them to available community, state and federal resources. Furthermore, the organization seeks to elevate the community's understanding of veteran issues, to provide solutions and to deepen collaboration among employers and human service providers.
