Women’s Fellowship sponsors drive for

Homes for the Brave

In response to last year’s overwhelming response and the continued needs of female veterans living at ABRI-Homes for the Brave in Bridgeport, the Women’s Fellowship is sponsoring a Veterans Day drive.

We will be collecting items from the (click here for the WISH LIST) on Friday, November 6 from 2 – 4 p.m. and Saturday, November 7 from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.  Pull around to the cemetery side and drop items off by the ramp entrance to the Meetinghouse. We hope you will join us in our support of this important drive.

Since 2011, based on the organization’s success and the current needs of homeless Veterans, ABRI/Homes for the Brave expanded its programs to serve female homeless Veterans. Female Soldiers: Forgotten Heroes is the first community-based transitional supportive housing program dedicated to homeless female Veterans in the State of Connecticut. Like all organizations, Homes for the Brave has been impacted by Covid-19 and is laser focused on keeping all of its clients safe and healthy. The attached list is in consideration of their Covid-19 needs.

To date, ABRI/Homes for the Brave has served over 1,400 men, women, and children, most of whom are Veterans. Thanks to the generosity of partners and supporters, they continue to provide housing, vocational training, life skills coaching, and more to individuals experiencing homelessness.

We hope you will participate in this important drive. If you are interested in helping with the drive, or if the drop-off hours do not fit in your schedule, feel free to email Sheila Bennett at sheilabennettms@gmail.com.
