Read: RRRP Weekly Report August 4, 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 8,000 veterans to more than 9,300 resources. Unfortunately, the needs of today’s veterans remain high.

RRRP client quote of the week:  
“Very knowledgeable and helpful. The VA should be taking notes from her on how to take care of a veteran.”

Clients reached out this week seeking assistance with VA disability claims, financial assistance, mental health access and legal support. Clients continue to reach out seeking employment services. Emergency financial assistance services inquiries were related to rent, vehicles, housing, utilities and back to school supplies. Clients also reached out seeking legal assistance and help accessing their VA benefits, as well as navigating family law issues.
