Helping Our Hometown Heroes

There are numerous benefits Illinois Veterans have earned and are entitled to receive and are not always aware of how to access them. Helping Our Hometown Heroes assists Illinois Veterans with information on those issues from a variety of vendors, including Social Security, healthcare, housing, unemployment benefits, and specialty programs available for minority, women, disabled and homeless veterans.


Illinois Warrior Assistance Program

The Illinois Warrior Assistance Program provides confidential assistance for Illinois Veterans as they transition back to their everyday lives after serving our country. Health professionals are there to help.


Veterans Care

The Veterans Care Program is designed to provide comprehensive, affordable healthcare to Illinois' uninsured veterans. The program covers those veterans who have the least access to reliable healthcare. These are the veterans who cannot currently access Veterans Health Administration's benefits and who meet specific income requirements.
