RRRP Weekly Impact Report July 27

RRRP client quote of the week:

“I received the notice that my VA rating has been approved! This is because of your guidance, encouragement and helping me stay on track. You were patient, persistent, and a polite professional.”

RRRP processed 15 new cases this week and provided 19 new referrals for clients. Financial assistance, suicide and mental health, and physical health care needs were the top areas clients sought support and assistance with.

Referral Partner Highlight: Puppies Behind Bars
Puppies Behind Bars is a non-profit organization that trains prison inmates to train dogs for injured veterans and explosive-detection canines for law enforcement. Puppy Behind Bars’ Service Dogs for Those Who’ve Served Us was established in 2006 and provides service dogs to combat veterans who deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan and sustained injuries, including traumatic brain injury (TBI) or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The Labrador Retriever Puppies are trained in prison from 8 weeks to 20 to 28 months of age and then each puppy is effectively matched with a veteran in need. Puppies Behind Bars is currently training approximately 50 dogs in four different prisons and each will be placed with a veteran once training is complete. Puppies Behind Bars is a trusted partner of IAVA’s and our Rapid Response Referral Program (RRRP) has referred 10 veterans in need to this amazing and unique program.
