IAVA’s Rapid Response Referral Program (RRRP) works with veterans and families across the nation providing critical support, guidance and connections to on the ground resources. RRRP is staffed by masters-level Veteran Transition Managers (VTMs) that work on the front lines every single day, ensuring our nation’s heroes and their families have the support they need and have earned. To date, RRRP has connected over 9,200 veterans and family members to more than 11,200 resources.
It’s been an incredibly busy week, as veteran needs remain high. RRRP continues to provide top notch services to clients, engage in advocacy work for our community and ensure that the impact of our work is heard:

- Client quote of the week: “My case manager went above and beyond for me, more than any other organization has. I have been trying to get direction and assistance for almost a year, and everything IAVA was able to find, locate and assist with was within less than a month!” Learn more by checking out RRRP’s latest Weekly Impact Report
