What We Do

Veteran support communities bring together local Veteran resource providers and other community assets.  The initiative will help more efficiently and effectively meet the needs of Servicemembers, Veterans and their Families (SMVF) throughout the state of Illinois.

Women veterans are an under-represented and under-resourced segment of the veteran population.  The Women’s Ambassador Program identifies highly-skilled women veterans who want to make Illinois the most beneficial state for their sisters-in-arms to live and thrive in.

Helps connect service members, veterans, and their families to the assistance they need when they need it.  The coordination center staff works in conjunction with the Veteran Support Communities and Women Veteran Ambassadors, whenever possible, to connect individuals to resources and support in their local community.
