Between eleven and twenty percent of U.S. Veterans return home with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). All too often, these Service Members do not receive the support they need to lead fulfilling, healthy lives as civilians, and are forced to navigate the isolation, loss of community, and diminished sense of purpose that accompany trauma.

CBAW is a charitable organization that builds healthy and connected communities where veterans and civilians share creative expression, mutual understanding, and support. Our combination of arts programs for veterans and community-building events and services has reached thousands of Service Members, Veterans, and Military Family members in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.
