Justice Cmte Program: Productive Conversations
In our polarized and segregated community, we see an opportunity to improve dialog with those around us – including, welcoming, and embracing those who hold opposing viewpoints. We invite our members to employ tools to demonstrate leadership in creating a truly diverse and inclusive club, and so bring positive social change to the greater Kansas City community. We are people of action, placing service above self.

Vocational Visit #1
 
Veterans Community Project
8900 Troost Avenue
Kansas City, MO 64131
 
September 21, 2021
Tour begins at 4:00-5:00
 
VCP Village - KC, located at 89th and Troost in Kansas City, Missouri, is an innovative community of 49 tiny houses for Veterans experiencing homelessness. The homes range in size from 240 to 320 square feet, meet all local city code requirements, and connect to city utility services. Approximately 70% of the Village construction was performed by community volunteers. 
 
Many Veterans arrive at VCP Village with little more than the pain, uncertainty, and loneliness of life on the streets. A tiny house provides everything he or she needs to live with dignity and safety; new furniture, appliances, housewares, bedding, food, and utilities, free of charge. More importantly, VCP Village provides sanctuary and the emotional space needed for the Veteran and VCP's Veteran Support Services team to thoroughly address the underlying causes of his or her homelessness.
 
Together, the Veteran and VCP's specially-trained case managers work to achieve incremental, lasting results in the areas of health and wellness, education, employment, financial literacy, and the development of a personal support network.
 
Once their desired goals are met, VCP assists the Veteran in securing a permanent housing solution. The Veteran is allowed to take the entire contents of the tiny home as they transition to a new life.
