Are you a veteran and want to help your fellow veterans? Did you know that currently in Brevard County, transportation is one of the biggest needs facing our veterans?
RSVP of Brevard has been awarded federal funding to support the volunteer efforts of a veterans transportation project. Vets Driving Vets is a joint initiative between RSVP of Brevard and Senior TranServe. This is a prime opportunity to join a program that will prove to be extremely beneficial to the lives of local veterans in need of transportation.
Significant cuts in funding to area agencies have resulted in a severe reduction and in some cases, total elimination of community transportation services available for veterans, particularly those who are considered low income or have a non-qualifying disability.
The project models successful veteran programs which partner veterans who wish to serve with veterans in need of services. The project seeks to establish a volunteer corps of veterans who provide coordination of operations and transportation for local veterans who need to travel to the Veterans Administration in Viera and to other providers for medical appointments and essential needs.
