Unique. Effective. Compassionate.
CVP began in 2009 with the mission of presenting State of California-certified training to First Responders primarily located in Santa Clara County. Attendees are taught how to identify and offer assistance to veterans who appear to be in crisis. Some 800 First Responders have been trained to date. The First Responder training continues on an appointment basis.
CVP developed and distributes the below "pocket card" to First Responders who attend our training. It is a simple, effective method to use when interacting with veterans in the field. Veterans who indicate they are interested in being connected with Veterans Affairs services will have their information forwarded to CVP via the "pocket card." CVP will call the area Veterans Affairs Outreach Clinical Coordinator requesting follow-up.
