Community Involvement

At USBA we believe it’s important to support our community through our contributions of time, talent and donations.

On any given night, it’s estimated nearly 38,000 of our Nation’s military veterans are homeless according to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). That’s a small city of men and women who served our country and now have no place to call home.

The privately funded Veterans Community Project (VCP) of Kansas City, Missouri has made great strides to provide the support homeless veteran’s need to transition to a new phase in their lives. This support includes a village of tiny homes, a Veterans Outreach Center and the VCP Village Community Center.

USBA has volunteered in the home construction and property maintenance phases, and along with our underwriter New York Life, sponsored one of the tiny homes. VCP has now begun their expansion to other metropolitan areas across the Nation.

Since 1992, Wreaths Across America (WAA) has made it a mission to remember fallen U.S. veterans, honor those who serve, and teach our children the value of freedom through visits to schools, civic groups and other organizations. It all starts with the laying of fresh evergreen wreaths on military gravesites in national cemeteries across America each December.

United Way holds a special place in hearts of all of us at USBA. Each year we sponsor an entire week of activities aimed at driving donations for the United Way of Greater Kansas City.

It’s an honor for USBA to support an organization that “…uses its experience and expertise to assemble the best service agencies and programs and the most generous volunteers and donors to provide the farthest-reaching network of support for those in need…”
