How We Help
Through our partnerships with Illinois organizations such as those shown below, we are reaching more veterans and their families with more diverse needs than we could when we were serving veterans directly. Please note:
Grants are not accepted from individuals, or organizations outside Illinois only 501©(3) organizations need apply.
Among the ways we have helped since our recent transition to provide greater support to other programs, we are:
-Assisting the Utility Workers Military Assistance Program (UMAP) in providing sustainability to veterans going through their program, to help get them through the CoVid-19 crisis. These veterans, upon graduation, will be hired by People’s Gas. This, in turn, will lift them out of poverty and sometimes homelessness.
-Continuing our partnership with the Chicago Woman’s Wellness Project to educate and assist female veterans with their unique issues.
-Providing funds to the All – Woman Veterans Honor Flight projected to take place in October 2021.
-Working with Lake County Responds for Veterans – This Organization assists Veterans in need by raising donations of money, building materials, and professional labor. They then coordinate the repairs, and assist the veteran and family members while repairs are being accomplished.
