Battle-Buddy-Bridge (B3)
 
 
 
Volunteers of America’s mission is to support and empower America’s most vulnerable individuals, including at-risk Veterans and their families. The VISTA project will seek to expand VOA’s Battle-Buddy-Bridge (B3) program, which trains Veterans as personal advocates and community resource navigators (“battle buddies”) for fellow Veterans in need of assistance with homelessness and other poverty-related needs.
