Kansas City becoming hub for groups serving veterans

Kansas City, which is home to Veterans of Foreign Wars, is welcoming several new veterans organizations to the city.

The Rosie Network, National Veterans Transition Services and Veteran Business Project have selected Kansas City as their new home and are creating the Center for Military and Veterans Reintegration. The center will serve as a hub for service members, veterans and their spouses to successfully prepare them for the return to civilian life.

Kansas City-based Midtown Redevelopment Partners will provide these organizations with support in their mission. They are opening offices in the newly renovated Troost Corridor, with temporary offices opening in the summer.

“As the heart of America, Kansas City is the perfect place given its easy access to any place in the country, veteran-friendly atmosphere, opportunities for employment, homeownership and small business development,” President and Co-Founder Maurice D. Wilson said. “The vision for NVTSI is to combine REBOOT Workshops with artificial intelligence job matching to radically transform veterans’ way of life in America.”

Stephanie Brown, The Rosie Network’s founder and CEO, is looking forward to expanding their services to the Kansas City area. of small business ownership.

“Our mission is simple: to help our active-duty, veterans and military spouses successfully realize the American Dream of small business ownership,” Brown said. “We all want the same thing – to set our transitioning service members, veterans and military spouses up for success.”

Troost Midtown Redevelopment Partners and NVTSI will sponsor a REBOOT Your Life Seminar for Military and Vets from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on March 25 at Plexpod Westport Commons, 300 E 39th St. in, Kansas City. A reception will follow the seminar. Check to make sure the seminar is taking place in light of the new ban on 50 or more people gathering.
