Funds raised at this event will go directly toward the building of tiny homes, infrastructure, an onsite community center as well as support services for the veteran residents.
VCP was founded by local Kansas City veterans who were frustrated by the number of homeless veterans in their hometown, many of whom suffer from PTSD from their years of service. VCP is dedicated to serving homeless veterans, using the power of community to meet their specific needs.
Veterans Community Project (VCP) is on a mission to eliminate veteran homelessness by providing transitional housing and enabling access to exceptional 360-degree service solutions. Focusing first in the Greater Kansas City area, VCP aspires to use Kansas City as the blueprint for achieving similar successes in cities across the United States and eliminating veteran homelessness nationwide. VCP is a 501(c)(3) Missouri nonprofit corporation founded by Kansas City veterans frustrated by rampant homelessness throughout the veteran community.
