Veterans Coalition

Begun as a pilot program utilizing Discretionary Funds from the Community Services Block Grant Program, the Veterans Resource Coalition (VRC) was developed to address issues related to Veteran’s basic needs and other requests, to avoid duplication of services and to leverage funds, as well as to promote placement of Veterans into jobs. Currently the VRC consists of thirty four (34) member Agencies who come to the aide of Veterans and their families in need.


Some Veterans may experience difficulties in transitioning back to civilian life. Others may have challenges securing employment because of physical issues, mental health issues, various disabilities, substance abuse, homelessness or impending homelessness. The VRC is prepared to handle all of these issues through its network of Agencies.

We conduct two standdown events each year (fall and spring).

 

The program has secured funding through the Spitz Foundation to help build a facility for Homeless Veterans.  

 

Through the Generous support of Lockheed Martin, ACE will be providing a Veterans ride program to take to job opportunities and medical appointments. (this starts in Sept)
