February’s featured speakers are from Veterans Community Project (VCP). VCP was on the 2018 CNN Top 10 List of Heroes. Veterans Community Project (VCP) is a Missouri nonprofit corporation founded by Kansas City Veterans who were frustrated by rampant homelessness throughout the Veteran community. VCP is on a mission to eliminate Veteran homelessness by providing transitional-housing and enabling access to exceptional 360-degree service solutions. Through contributions and partnerships, VCP is creating communities of tiny-homes and onsite services to provide housing stability and address the underlying cause of the Veteran’s homelessness. This combination of housing stability and onsite services will lead to more successful permanent housing outcomes.
The Co-Founder and Chief Project Officer, Branndon Mixon, will be speaking, along with Ben Hendershot, head of construction. Mixon spent four years with the 82nd Airborne Division during which he deployed to Afghanistan in September 2011 and participated in Operation Enduring Freedom. He medically retired from the Army in 2013 and returned home to Lee’s Summit, Missouri. Mixon started and was the CEO of Airborne Mechanical providing Veterans with low-cost/free heating and cooling services. He left his business to co-found Veterans Community Project.
