Veterans Community Project – Tiny Houses
The Veterans Community Project’s Mission is “We are determined to make a difference in the lives of homeless Veterans, a task accomplished only by community for community. We are building Veterans Village – a specialized community network of tiny homes and services dedicated to supporting every man and woman who took the oath for our country.” The idea is for veterans to help veterans by using their labor, shared experiences and compassion to help get homeless veterans off the street and into secure housing.
Host Melvin Merritt talks with Kevin Jamison, Chief Operation Officer and Founder of VCP about the mission and the Tiny Homes project. Tune in and find out how you can help them and the community of veterans in Kansas City.

Warriors Best Friend – Service Dogs
Since the attacks of September 11th 2001, over 2 million troops have been deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. As these men and women return home, Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) have emerged as signature injuries among our newest generation of soldiers. Medical studies prove that service dogs can help speed up the recovery of a soldier with PTSD and TBI, both physically and emotionally. Unfortunately, many wounded soldiers have to wait years to receive a service dog.
Warriors’ Best Friend’s mission is to provide critically needed service dogs free of cost for our veterans and their families. And in doing so, WBF saves two lives in the process! We adopt and train homeless canines to grant wounded soldiers the gift of greater self sufficiency through emotional and physical independence—empowering men and women to lead a free and active lifestyle.
Host Jeff Humfeld talks with Joe and Samantha of WBF about the dogs and veterans in their program and how they help both survive and thrive.
