Vadim Panasyuk, MSW
As a RRRP Director, Vadim is responsible for the strategic direction and day-to-day operations of IAVA’s Rapid Response Referral Program (RRRP). IAVA’s RRRP is a referral service with an intensive remote case management component which provides support and helps connect veterans with the benefits they’ve earned and the resources they need to meet their goals.
Vadim emigrated from Ukraine to the U.S. as a teen and subsequently received his citizenship during his second deployment to Iraq with the 3rd Infantry Division as Team Leader in a Battalion Task Force Sniper Section. Transition out of the military was not easy, but that experience has led him to dedicate his life to serving our nations veterans.
Before coming to IAVA, Vadim received his MSW from Fordham University, and gained extensive experience as a Case Manager and a Program Coordinator working with NYC homeless veteran population. Vadim joined the IAVA family and RRRP as a Veteran Transition Manager in 2015 and has rose through the ranks to lead the program in 2017.
