VBH cares deeply about our country, consequently we are committed as an ally in the fight for equality and the elimination of systemic bias and racism. The struggle over inequality for our black neighbors is not a new challenge. Nor is it a challenge to which our veterans are immune.
"We're committed to supporting the military in the Charlotte market, so we welcome the strategic collaboration between these two, great veteran-serving organizations," said Bank of America Charlotte Market President Charles Bowman. "The elimination of administrative expenses and the holistic delivery of complementary services is imperative during a period where philanthropic dollars are being stretched."
Housing remains a top individual service request among Veterans and military families in our area.
Veterans from across the Charlotte region are inviting everyone, regardless of their
connection to the military, to participate in the Carolinas Veterans Day Festival at Truist Field in Uptown Charlotte on
November 11, 2021, from 9 a.m. to 2p.m. This free, and open-to-the-public celebration will be an interactive day of
fitness, shopping, and fellowship recognizing the service of our Veterans and their families hosted by Veterans Bridge
Home and the Charlotte Knights and was made possible by generous support from Truist and Lowe's.
The Veterans Bridge Home (VBH) Board of Directors unanimously elected Amaris McComas as the organization's new board chair.
On Tuesday, August 11, Second Lady Karen Pence, joined by Assistant Secretary for Mental Health and Substance Use, Dr. Elinore McCance-Katz, will visit Charlotte, North Carolina.
