New Year, New Location!

The Chicago Veterans Team would like to thank everyone for making 2015 a great year. We are starting off 2016 with some wonderful news. We finally have a location!
We invite you to join us in celebrating the grand opening of the VetHub (5031 W. Montrose Ave., Chicago, IL) on February 20th at 1pm.
The VetHub will not only serve as the office for Chicago Veterans, but will also be used as a mentoring facility for Veterans needing assistance with laptops available for Chicago Veterans' Members to work on disability claims, education benefits, building a resume, finding employment or even starting their own business.

Call for Art!

We are looking for art created by or inspired by Veterans! The art will be displayed at the brand new VetHub.

*All art will remain property of its respective artist.

Chicagoland Veterans Study

It's more than "just a survey". It's the data organizations, like Chicago Veterans, need for grant proposals to keep running and providing services to Veterans and our families. It's the data politicians need to drive legislative changes in favor of our Veteran community. It's our fellow Veterans coming home tomorrow and finding all the resources they need for a successful transition.

Take the survey! Make a difference!

Chicago's Veteran Community

 
Urban Warriors is a trauma-informed initiative linking at-risk youth with combat veterans. Many youth in high-violence neighborhoods view themselves as soldiers; Veterans have common feelings and experiences, which creates a unique relationshipThe youth not only pick up on these similarities, research has reflected the striking parallels between experiences of child soldiers around the world and gang members in the United States. The bond of mentorship inspires not only youth to lead a better life but also leaves Veterans feeling more enriched, blended into the community, and engenders a positive impact on their lives. 
 
Urban Warrior is recruiting new mentors. Help out your community and be a warrior here at home!
