Veterans Community Project (VCP) Overview 

Founded in 2016 in Kansas City, MO, VCP is dedicated to supporting every man and woman who took the oath to defend our nation. The most significant barrier to ending Veteran homelessness is the revolving door of unstable housing and the frustrating maze Veterans must navigate to get essential support. The first step to being an effective program is to connect Veterans and the community. VCP created an innovative homeless housing program and outreach assistance that provides inclusive services to aid Veterans in re-claiming control over their lives.

The Team 

VCP is comprised of a staff that identifies as connectors, feelers, and doers on a mission to help any Veteran, regardless of discharge status or time served. We pride ourselves on moving with swift, bold action driven by our mission. At the heart of VCP, we believe in quality collaboration, community, compassion, and serving all Veterans with dignity and respect.
