Vietnam Veterans of California is a community based veteran’s service agency serving veterans of all eras. We strive to engage veterans and their families in a process of healing and growth that celebrates their individuality, identifies all barriers to success, mitigates those barriers, and challenges each participant to live to their utmost potential. VVC has never left a veteran behind.
Veterans Resource Centers of America introduces a new sharper mission statement in this strategic plan. This statement reflects two dimensions that define the purposes of the organization and its intended contributions to improving the lives of veterans and their families who are served through its efforts. The two dimensions are:
: This means the act of identifying and including veterans into services that they want and need with the opportunity to experience their own individual potential.
A process of healing and growth means the opportunity for every veteran to actively participate with their family, friends, co-workers and other valued relationships in creating a life that is joyful and fulfilled.
Vietnam Veterans of California (VVC) partnering with the Department of Veterans Affairs immediately housed or prevented 420 veterans and their families from becoming homeless last year in the Supportive Services for Veterans Families (SSVF) grant. Due to a promising practice model rolled out by VVC in all five of its Veterans Resource Centers across California last year, the VA has asked them to do it again. VVC will be refunded in California and will add a second million to fight veteran homelessness in Northern Nevada. Northern Nevada Veterans Resource Center (NNVRC) opened on October 1 st, 2012 and will serve a minimum of 370 veteran families that are homeless or at risk of homelessness. Working in partnership with the Department of Veterans Affairs, the local Continuum of Care, and other local service providers, NNVRC will prevent and cure veteran homelessness in Northern Nevada.
