WHO WE ARE:

We are a group of veterans of the Armed Forces of the United States of America, American citizens, members of the Catholic faith, and members of Catholic War Veterans of the U.S.A. (CWV), Our Lady of Peace Post 1947 in Las Vegas, Nevada, who have established a 501(c)(3) public charity, "the Catholic Veterans of Nevada Charity Foundation" doing business as "Veterans Care Assistance Program" or VCAP, to expand and improve our welfare program for the benefit of veterans, their families, and the citizens of Nevada.

What We Do:

  4. It participates in a community sponsored Veterans Service Fair (formerly Stand-Down) for homeless veterans each October.
  5. It assists homeless veterans daily by providing RTC Bus Passes and Water through the VA NE Primary Care Clinic (VA NEPCC) Homeless Outreach.
