RRRP Weekly Report November 10, 2017

unnamed

 

RRRP client quote of the week:
“Great experience so far. My unique request for employment were answered very quickly. This has been a huge help in my search for employment overseas.”

Trends:
Clients continue seeking assistance initiating the VA disability claims process.  RRRP continues to receive inquiries seeking GI Bill transferability guidance, as well as inquiries into how to maximize their education benefits. Emergency financial assistance needs continue to dominate requests over the last month, as many clients are struggling with basic need costs like rent, utilities, and vehicle repairs. Clients continue to seek advocacy and assistance with their current Mental Health (MH) providers in the VA system and many are seeking community MH resources. Clients seeking employment services are reaching out for career guidance, resume assistance, employment and small business loan resources. We’ve also had an increase in clients reporting that they are struggling to find employment due to underlying mental health issues.  Several clients reached out this week due to homelessness and identified mental health issues and underemployment as key factors impacting lack of housing. Several veterans reached out seeking health care solutions experiencing physical health challenges related to shoulder and back pain, degenerative disc disorder, brain tumor, dental care and flat feet.
