Ryan Lawn & Tree Celebrates 35th Anniversary by Honoring Veterans and Donating to Veterans Community Project
By: Ryan Lawn & Tree
"We are honored to partner with such an incredible organization that is helping to serve the men and women who fought for our country and freedom," said Larry Ryan, Founder and President of Ryan Lawn & Tree.
Veterans Community Project is a 501(c)(3) organization founded by a group of combat veterans in Kansas City, Missouri who resolved to stand up for their many brothers and sisters who have missed the critical attention they deserve.
VCP's solution to provide critical support services is two-fold:
The Veteran Outreach Center: A walk-in center that serves as a one-stop shop for every type of problem our veterans face every day. Regardless of their time in service, discharge status, or any other qualifier, VCP is ready to help. VCP staff assists Veterans with navigating the VA and their benefits, identification services, mental and physical health referrals, financial counseling, and employment support among other services.
VCP Village: Built by Veterans for Veterans, VCP Village is a planned tiny home community designed to get homeless Veterans off the street and transition them to permanent housing. In contrast to traditional homeless services, a tiny home provides the Veteran with privacy, a sense of security, and the ability to reintegrate at a comfortable pace.
