Emergency Assistance Funds.
VCP provides financial assistance and case management to Veterans in the Kansas City or Northern Colorado area who are experiencing a financial crisis, prioritizing those at risk for homelessness.
A trained VCP case manager will work with each eligible Veteran to create a plan that addresses immediate needs and promotes long-term stability.
