Many Veterans fail to receive the services they need because access to them is complex and confusing to navigate. According to a recent study, 14 of the 20 Veterans who die by suicide on a daily basis are not connected to the VA or other support agency.
The Veterans Navigation Campus harnesses the collective power of Kansas City's Veteran services community and creates a straight line to life-changing support. A coalition of trusted partners - nonprofit agencies and local businesses - will offer assistance to Veterans within their respective areas of expertise: housing, emergency assistance, mental health, legal aid, substance abuse, healthcare, job skills/workforce training, VA navigation, and more.
By combining resources and working collaboratively, the resident partners of the Veterans Navigation Campus will provide targeted, comprehensive care for Veterans in one setting. By greatly reducing barriers to access, VCP strives to not only prevent Veteran homelessness but radically impact the crisis of Veteran suicide in our community.
As the host agency, VCP will offer all office and programming space to resident partners free of charge. A capital campaign for the Veterans Navigation Campus is currently underway. For more information, contact Vanessa Van Goethem-Piela at 816-599-6503 (ext. 1502) or firstname.lastname@example.org.
