To honor, assist and raise support for our Warriors and their Families who sacrifice so much through selfless service to our nation.


We are Bridging The Gap of Georgia, a registered 501c3 organization dedicated to helping every one of this nation’s veterans onto a road to their American Dream. Accepting NO government funding, we are in fact a conduit of resources made available by many corporations, churches, communities, cities, towns and people just like you, who care about the success of our nation’s returning veterans. BTG is staffed entirely by volunteers. We are a watershed of good will and caring, an ongoing “THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE” to the veterans of this fine nation who insure freedom and liberty across the globe to literally billions of people.

BTG is a 501(c)(3) foundation that is dedicated to assisting our Veterans.  BTG works DIRECTLY with the Veterans on a one-on-one basis – we’re NOT a call center.  No one in our organization collects a salary – everyone works on a volunteer basis.  We don’t just listen to their stories and tell the Veterans where to go get help; WE ARE THE HELP.  We provide food, and shelter, and educational assistance DIRECTLY to as many Veterans as we can afford to.  There is no long, tedious, confusing application process for them.  If we have the space available in one of our residential centers, a Veteran is invited to come live at one of those centers that very same day.

To find out how you and your organization can thank a veteran for their service through BTG, contact Keith Laseter via Keith@BTG-Foundation.org  or go on line at www.btg-foundation.org


Lead “Bridging The Gap of Georgia” to be an effective, modular “action arm” that helps keep patriotism strong and which can interface / partner with and support any eligible program, activity or organization that supports our Soldiers, their Families and which seeks to honor the sacrifice of those brave men and women who give their all to keep liberty’s light burning strong.

This is a community issue — not just a government problem. One that we can end here in Georgia if we come together as a community, as churches, as associations, as employers, as mentors, and as people giving veterans their greatest chances for success in a world where they feel hopeless, lost, and alone.


“Once upon a time, there was a wise man who used to go to the ocean to do his writing. He had a habit of walking on the beach before he began his work.

One day, as he was walking along the shore, he looked down the beach and saw a human figure moving like a dancer. He smiled to himself at the thought of someone who would dance to the day, and so, he walked faster to catch up.

As he got closer, he noticed that the figure was that of a young man, and that what he was doing was not dancing at all. The young man was reaching down to the shore, picking up small objects, and throwing them into the ocean.

He came closer still and called out “Good morning! May I ask what it is that you are doing?”

The young man paused, looked up, and replied “Throwing starfish into the ocean.”

“I must ask, then, why are you throwing starfish into the ocean?” asked the somewhat startled wise man.

To this, the young man replied, “The sun is up and the tide is going out. If I don’t throw them in, they’ll die.”

Upon hearing this, the wise man commented, “But, young man, do you not realize that there are miles and miles of beach and there are starfish all along every mile? You can’t possibly make a difference!”

At this, the young man bent down, picked up yet another starfish, and threw it into the ocean. As it met the water, he said,

“It made a difference for that one.”
