The mission of the Illinois Department of Veterans’ Affairs (IDVA) is to empower veterans and their families to thrive. We do this by assisting them in navigating the system of federal, state and local resources and benefits; by providing long-term health care for eligible veterans in our Veterans’ Homes; and by partnering with other agencies and non-profits to help veterans address education, mental health, housing, employment, and other challenges.
Cook County Veterans Affairs (VA) was established in December 2012. VA empowers all Cook County veterans who have served in a branch of the military through workshops, newsletters and access to a network of outreach services that allows veterans to leverage their knowledge and achieve a better quality of life for themselves and their families.
