Bridge 4 Veterans

Their goal is to get the veterans to accomplish their goals, whatever they may be. To do this, they are partnering with agencies such as the United Way of Citrus County, especially their Mission United veterans program, the Veterans Coalition, Veterans Affairs and St. Vincent de Paul CARES, among others. Immediate plans are to do some repairs and sprucing up the shelter itself as well as assessing the needs and goals of the residents, whether it’s finding jobs for those who are able to work or their own places to live for those who are able to live on their own.

Veterans Services

The Citrus County Veterans Service Office provides guidance and assistance to veterans and their families so they are able to navigate the difficult VA systems, DOD retirement systems, and Florida State Benefits Programs in order to obtain pension, compensation, burial, educational, medical, insurance benefits, tax exemptions, park passes, & retirement benefits provided by the Department of VA Affairs, The State of Florida, and the Department of Defense.

United Way

With 70% of our Veterans over the age of 65, many are facing medical needs. The prevalence of relative care givers is increasing and is not always the most optimal for the Veteran's specific medical needs. An "Adult Health Care Program" is not available in Citrus County. Many Veterans applying for assistance struggle to manage household budgets and are in need of training. Veterans under the age of 62 are not yet eligible for SSI and many face income struggles.
