VEAP is pleased to introduce the newest member of our Social Services team!
James McCants Jr., LSW is VEAP’s new Social Worker and joined our team in March of 2021. In his role, he will provide targeted case management to program participants, and build connections with outside resources to holistically support community members in crisis. James previously worked as a Child Protection Social Worker with Ramsey County, and also has experience as an Associate Pastor before pursuing a social work career. He enjoys serving individuals in a direct way and using his public speaking and communication skills to skillfully serve as an advocate. James is a nature lover, likes exercising when he can, and reading books. A native of Providence, Rhode Island, he graduated from The University of Rhode Island and moved to Minnesota in 2004.
If stuck on an island with just one food of his choice, James says: “I think I could live on purple grapes!”
Welcome James to the team!
