Bridging Communities: KCH & the Veterans Community Project

In a world where busy schedules and demanding routines often overshadow the needs of our community, it’s essential to take a step back and acknowledge the sacrifices made by our veterans. The Veterans Community Project (VCP) in Kansas City is a beacon of hope and support for those who have selflessly served our country. Recently, we had the privilege of visiting VCP for a happy hour, where we donated food and gained insight into the incredible work being done for our veterans.

The Veterans Community Project is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing housing, support, and community for veterans who are experiencing homelessness. Founded by a group of combat veterans, the VCP aims to eliminate homelessness among veterans. This would be done by providing transitional housing, access to healthcare, and other essential services. Their innovative approach focuses on creating a sense of community and belonging, which is vital to the veterans’ journey toward stability.

When KCH visited the Veterans Community Project, it was not just about the physical act of giving, but also about understanding the challenges faced by veterans and appreciating the holistic approach taken by the VCP.

The Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Kansas City Homes affiliation with the Veterans Community Project started in 2017. KCH’s Community Outreach Committee makes it possible year after year!



KCH toured the Kansas City VCP Village, 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. To learn more about VCP, visit their website at https://www.veteranscommunityproject.org.

The collaboration between Kansas City Homes and the Veterans Community Project showcases the potential for positive change when businesses and non-profit organizations join forces. The visit was a valuable learning experience, highlighting the importance of community, empathy, and support for our veterans.

It is a testament to the fact that when we stand together, we can make a significant impact on the lives of those who have sacrificed so much for our country.
