Family & Friends Transitional Veterans Home provides housing for homeless veterans from Joliet, Lockport, Lemont, New Lenox, Romeoville, Bolingbrook, Morris, and throughout the greater Chicago area. Our non-profit, volunteer-based program helps struggling veterans get plugged back into society. We consider it our chance to give back to those men and women who have served their country and now need a helping hand.
Family & Friends offers comprehensive veteran assistance, helping with job searches and resumes, life skills, substance issues, financial counseling, and more. Founded by the mother of a veteran, our organization takes a deeply compassionate and understanding approach to helping veterans become healthy, independent and productive members of society again. Whether a veteran is struggling with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), depression, subtance abuse or other issues, Family & Friends Transitional Veterans Home exists to serve our local veterans' needs.
If you are a veteran in need of housing assistance, or if you are interested in volunteering or working full time for a non-profit organization, please call (815) 280-5783.
