Bridging the Gap Foundation
Our organization, established in 2011, Bridging The Gap is a 501(c)(3) foundation that is dedicated to assisting our Veterans. BTG works DIRECTLY with the Veterans on a one-on-one basis – we’re NOT a call center. No one in our organization collects a salary – everyone works on a volunteer basis. We don’t just listen to their stories and tell the Veterans where to go get help; WE ARE THE HELP. We provide food, and shelter, and educational assistance DIRECTLY to as many Veterans as we can afford to. There is no long, tedious, confusing application process for them. If we have the space available in one of our residential centers, the Veteran is invited to come live at one of those centers that very same day.
