Our Mission serving Veterans and people with disabilities

bridging az support our veterans

Bridging AZ receives NO government funding. Yet we still furnish 200-300 apartments for veterans every year. Plus provide furniture and new beds for the state’s largest behavioral health agency.

Bridging AZ is the first and only furniture bank in Arizona. We support Arizona social service agencies and their caseworkers by providing basic furniture and household goods to their clients, particularly US veterans working their way out of homelessness. Not all battles are fought in war, but many are emotional and internal battles that are fought daily on the battlefields at home after service. When veterans who have been struggling with homelessness have not only a stable place to call home but the furniture and household goods that make it feel like a real home, they are better able to focus on their emotional well-being, and they are less likely to slip back into the habits that led to their homelessness. Our support helps them continue the positive changes they’ve started.

Beds for vets:

We purchase new full size for veterans as well as basic furniture for their new found home. We work with The Arizona Housing Coalition who helps chronically homeless veterans get off the streets with a permanent supportive housing program.

VA Secretary McDonough says veteran homelessness numbers improving in Arizona. Secretary McDonough said the goal for 2022 was to permanently house 821 veterans in Arizona, which he said the VA exceeded by 33 READ STORY. The VA housed 253 veterans in Arizona in the first four months of 2023, pacing for another successful year. We are proud to be a part of this initiative for Arizona veterans. 

Welcome Boxes

In the summer of 2023 we started a new program where all the veterans we serve receive a “Welcome Box” for their new found home.  The welcome box contains all new items needed to setup an apartment including:  We will provide 200-300 of these “Welcome Boxes a year.  Cost around $200 each or $50,000 – $60,000 per year for the Welcome Box program. You can support our efforts by making a contribution or sponsoring a product for 1, 10, 100 or 200 veterans.
