Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
Veterans Community Project of Oklahoma City will be a specialized village of tiny homes with on-site, wraparound support services designed to equip Veterans experiencing homelessness with the tools needed to return to a stable, prosperous, independent life.
Each tiny house provides everything a Veteran needs to live with dignity and security; new furniture, appliances, housewares, bedding, personal items, and utilities - all free of charge. The homes offer sanctuary and the emotional space needed for each Veteran and VCP’s specially-trained team to thoroughly address the underlying causes of his or her homelessness.
With the support of their case managers and battle buddies, Veterans work to achieve incremental, lasting results in the areas of health and wellness, income stability, education and training, fiscal understanding, and the development of a personal support network. Once the Veteran’s individual goals are met, VCP assists him or her in securing a permanent housing solution and transitioning to a new life.
Nick Collison,former professional basketball player and special assistant for the Oklahoma City Thunder, and Bryan Meyer, CEO and Co-Founder of Veterans Community Project, announce a new village in downtown Oklahoma City.
We’ve had tremendous momentum and local support in favor of identifying the appropriate location and building a Village and Community Center. While we are eager to break ground and begin serving the community as soon as possible, our timeline to begin the construction of the Village is shifting as we work with the neighborhood association and city officials to ensure we’re collaborating with the surrounding community on how best to proceed and continue the project’s momentum. VCP is committed to Oklahoma City, and VCP of OKC capital efforts will continue as we move forward.
Sponsor a Tiny House.
Be a permanent part of VCP Village. Each tiny home features a fully-functional kitchen, bathroom, and living space. Every detail is designed with Veterans’ needs and preferences in mind, including the placement of doors and windows to increase a sense of security for those impacted by post-traumatic stress disorder.
Your organization's or family's name will be proudly displayed on a house plaque as a lasting reminder of your commitment to our country's service members.
