Veterans Resource Centers of America is a community based veteran’s service agency with a 40 year history of providing veteran programs. We strive to engage veterans and their families in a process of healing and growth that celebrates their individuality, identifies all barriers to success, mitigates those barriers, and challenges each participant to live to their utmost potential.
With fifteen (15) Resource Centers across Northern California, Central California, Northern Nevada and Northern Arizona, we are focused on the complex realities of veterans issues and work diligently to design innovative programs, which respond to the diverse needs of veterans and the community.

We are proud to be one of the first community based veterans service agencies to receive CARF Accreditation for the care we provide to veterans and their families.
Veterans Resource Centers of America (VRC) is a community-based veteran’s service agency with a 44-year history of providing veteran programs. With fifteen (15) Resource Centers across Northern California, Northern Nevada and Northern Arizona, we focus on the complex realities of veteran’s issues and work diligently to design innovative programs that respond to the diverse needs of veterans and the community.
Formed as Flower of the Dragon by Veterans in 1972, the agency is historically recognized by the U.S. White House as a national model for effective service to Veterans and their families in the nation. We are certified by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) and provide the highest standard of care.
In 1997, VRC opened a health clinic in Luong Son to serve the impoverished people of Vietnam. In 2002, VRC was able to build the first of three schools. Today we continue to provide medical services, medicines, nutritional training to villagers in remote areas of Hoa Binh Province.
Veterans Housing Development Corporation (VHDC) was established in 2007 as a supporting entity organized to respond to the need for housing among VRC’s Veteran clients. VHDC has 8 sites identified at this time on which to build affordable housing for disabled veterans and their families.
Today, VRC services include: homeless prevention and rapid re-housing, employment and training programs, permanent supportive housing, transitional housing, behavioral health treatment, nutrition services, case management, resource centers and humanitarian efforts.
In addition, VRC provides transitional housing for homeless veterans through the VA’s Homeless Providers Grant and Per Diem Program. The purpose is to promote the development and provision of supportive housing and/or supportive services with the goal of helping homeless veterans achieve residential stability, increase their skills levels and/or income, and obtain greater self-determination.
