The Home for the Brave program was created by Broward Housing Solutions® on November 11, 2012 with the purpose of providing returning veterans with affordable, safe, and permanent housing.  Serving veterans with a Severe and Persistent Mental Illness (SPMI) such as, Major Depression Disorder (MDD), Bi-Polar and Schizophrenia in addition to Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), are our priorities within this program.

Some alarming statistics that helped launch our initiative in creating this program included, but were not limited to:

  • 250,000, or one-third (75,000), of Florida’s homeless population are veterans; according to the Florida Department of Veterans’ Affairs.
  • Addiction and mental illness can be attributed to homelessness within the veteran population, which is experienced by approximately 76% of homeless veterans.
  • Foreclosure rates are four times higher for veterans than that of a non-veteran.
  • Veterans face the highest unemployment rate at 9.2%.
  • 19% of veterans from the Iraq War screen positive for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
