Executive Summary

Since 2007, VOA of IL has provided housing and employment services to Chicago's homeless veterans through its True North Project (TNP). VOA of IL has found that veterans are more apt to take part in a program that they learn about through other veterans - in essence, their experience validates a program. The addition of 16 part-time AmeriCorps members acting as outreach coordinators, recruited from graduates of our TNP program, will allow VOA of IL to assist 75 more homeless veterans on their path to self-sufficiency with resources and tools to regain independence.
