Weekly RRRP Impact Report – September 14, 2016

In 2012, Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America saw a need to create a safety net for transitioning veterans to connect them to the extensive, but often fragmented, network of support systems and resources available to them. The Rapid Response Referral Team has connected over 7,100 veterans to more than 8,250 resources. Unfortunately, the needs of today’s veterans remain high.

US Army (USA) Specialist First Class (SPC) Manifold hugs his family after a long deployment in Iraq (IRQ) with the 1440th Engineer detachment, of the Michigan Army National Guard (MIARNG).

RRRP client quote of the week:  
“My VTM is always on point and does exactly what he says he will do. Hands down the best case worker I’ve ever come across.”
