The Veterans Community Project (VCP), founded in Kansas City, KS is building its second Veterans Village in Longmont.

The VCP‘s mission is “dedicated to supporting every man and woman who took the oath for our country. They are determined to make a difference in the lives of homeless veterans, a task accomplished by the community for the community.”

They are building a specialized community of tiny homes and onsite services to provide housing stability and address the underlying cause of veteran homelessness.

We sat down with the founders of the project, Mark Solomon and Chris Stout as well as Kevin Mulshine, a local business leader who’s providing land for the project and Bonnie Finely, a city council member responsible for sparking the project here in Longmont along with Tim Waters, city council member acting as the moderator of the discussion.
