Read: RRRP Weekly Report April 25, 2017

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 7,900 veterans to more than 9,100 resources. Unfortunately, the needs of today’s veterans remain high.

RRRP client quote of the week:  

“[VTM] was patient and very knowledgeable! She offered great resources and cheered me on when I got frustrated. Her assistance got a huge burden lifted off of my shoulders and I’ve been much more positive about things ever since. Thank you so much for the RRRP program and for hiring case managers who have such caring hearts.”


Clients seeking emergency financial assistance made up the bulk of new cases. This is followed by veterans seeking employment assistance and housing resources. Veterans continue to reach out seeking help accessing their education benefits.
