Midwest Veterans Closet

Impacting Veterans Lives, a 501 C 3 (47-2126427) humanitarian aid organization serves Veterans with HELP, HOPE, and DIGNITY through our Midwest Veterans Closet.

Midwest Veterans Closet, located in North Chicago, Illinois serves Veterans with weather appropriate clothing, personal care items, housewares, furniture, food from our Food Pantry, and more recently delivered meals to disabled, homebound Veterans with extremely generous donations from you.

In addition, our Drop-In Center, a warming and cooling center, is equipped with a bank of computers for professional (job searches and applications) and personal use. Here, a Cup O’ Joe is always available and often hot or cold food – all free to Veterans. Midwest Veterans Closet ‘Career Closet’ offers professional wear to Veterans, and current military who are preparing to re-enter civilian life. These men and women cannot afford such attire and consequently would present themselves at a job interview with jeans and a t-shirt.

Senior Services Associates, Inc.

Since 1973, our agency has been advocating for seniors, their families and caregivers. As an Area Agency on Aging (AAoA) member agency, our highly trained staff and dedicated volunteers provide services to adults 60 years old or better who live in Kane, Kendall and McHenry counties. In 2012 our by-laws were amended to allow services to persons age 18 to 59 in response to being asked to administer the Veterans Intervention Program (VIP); this program provides needed services to veterans of all ages. In 2014 services to this age group were expanded to include Information and Assistance, Adult Protective Services and Nursing Home and Community Ombudsman.
