Read: RRRP Weekly Report April 7, 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 7,800 veterans to more than 9,100 resources. Unfortunately, the needs of today’s veterans remain high.

“But this! OMG! tHANK YOU SO MUCH! This is awesome. I really do appreciate it. This has totally made my day! With everything going on, it’s just all crazy. Im staying positive. Again thank you so much for all your outstanding work. I love talking to you. Keeps me going with your positive attitude. Thank you so much [VTM]!”


Clients seeking emergency financial assistance and help with VA appeals made up the bulk of new cases. This is followed by veterans seeking legal assistance, classic transition needs, employment assistance and housing resources.
