Q: Who qualifies to use the services?
A: All veterans plus Merchant Marines, spouses of Veterans and their minor children qualify for our services.
Q: How can I get involved?
A: The best ways to get involved are to make monthly donations and volunteer. We need volunteers to help process our services as well as acting as a liaison with corporate sponsors.
Q: What types of services do you provide?
A: Follow our link to our services page.
Q: I don’t support war; why should I get involved?
A: Supporting VRP is not the same as supporting a war. Our Veterans need our help. They endured the ravages of service, and have been left out in the cold by our government. We help our Veterans and their families become civilians following their active service when there is nothing else out there that does what we do.
Q: What percentage of my donation goes to the project?
A: Based on our projected goal for donations during 2018, eighty-two percent of donations will go directly to the services for Veterans. Our goal is to keep our operating costs less than 10% of donations, which would include salaries, office space, utilities, sundries, equipment, and office supplies.
