Bastion is an intentional community in which wounded, ill, or injured veterans live alongside retired military and civilian volunteers. Every Bastion resident benefits from the experience of helping others, and this in turn promotes wellbeing and life satisfaction. The Bastion approach restores families, reduces stress at home, and expands social networks to strengthen resilience. We are promoting wellness and active engagement through physical design. Rather than pairing homes with typical front doors that open toward the street, a "cluster" of four units each have a front door that faces a common courtyard. Our homes are open and accessible with generous windows, and residents enjoy their close proximity to a centrally-located wellness center.
