In 2018, Bastion announced the establishment of a new career services office for veterans on the Bastion property. The services are provided by NextOp, a highly-respected non-profit veteran job placement service headquartered in Houston. The incubation of the NextOp Louisiana satellite office, helmed by Louisiana Regional Manager Ben Armstrong, is part of Bastion’s expansion to become a hub for veteran services in the region.
Currently, NextOp is the only veteran and military employment recruitment non-profit operating in Louisiana. Through the program, mentors work with each transitioning veteran to adjust to their new roles and cultivate the necessary skills to excel in new careers.
Bastion, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, provides a supportive living environment for injured veterans and families within our intentionally designed neighborhood by augmenting their care with neighbors, volunteers and specialists for a holistic approach to community integration. THANK YOU TO OUR PARTNERS:
Bastion was made possible with seed funding from the Bob Woodruff Foundation and Wounded Warrior Project.
