In 2016, Veterans Community Project launched in Kansas City, Missouri as a grassroots effort led by a small group of combat Veterans. The community embraced the project with thousands of volunteers, passionate individual and corporate funders, dedicated elected officials, and supportive local service agencies.
Today, the Kansas City model is a blueprint for how a community can join together and make sure that no Veteran is left behind.
Veterans Community Project is dedicated to supporting every man and woman who took the oath for our country. We are determined to make a difference in the lives of homeless Veterans, a task accomplished by the community for the community.

homes for the brave.
Through contributions and partnerships, we created VCP Village -- a community of transitional tiny-homes and onsite services to provide housing stability and address the underlying cause of the Veteran’s homelessness. This combination of housing stability and onsite services leads to more successful permanent housing outcomes.
In contrast to traditional homeless services, a tiny-home provides the Veteran with privacy, a sense of security, and the ability to reintegrate at a comfortable pace. Veteran services are facilitated through an onsite community center that provides the Veterans with mentoring, case management, counseling, and linkage to other programs and services.
