RRRP Weekly Report November 3, 2017

unnamed

 

RRRP client quote of the week:  
“[VTM] was very helpful with me while going through my housing situation in which I felt was a crisis because I was seriously at risk of becoming homeless also very stressed and had a lot of anxiety. I appreciated her checking on me on a regular basis and being an advocate by reaching out to my landlord to try and work things out. In the end I was still forced to move but found a nice apartment and a new landlord willing to give me a chance and work with me.”

Trends:
Clients continue seeking assistance initiating the VA disability claims process . Education benefit issues this week include BAH and Voc Rehab payment delays and transferability inquiries. Clients are also seeking guidance on how to maximize their education benefits while attending online programs. Substantial increase in emergency financial assistance needs  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.
