Veterans' Resources

Illinois’ 1st Congressional District is home to approximately 40,000 veterans. I take great pride in representing these heroic men and women in Washington and my staff and I are dedicated to helping them and all of our nation’s veterans.

Below you will find helpful and informative links about veterans’ services and benefits in and around the 1st District. If you have any questions or need further assistance receiving your benefits please contact my office.

Vet Centers

Vet Centers across the country provide a broad range of counseling, outreach and referral services to combat Veterans and their families. Vet Centers guide Veterans and their families through many of the major adjustments in lifestyle that often occur after a Veteran returns from combat. Services for a Veteran may include individual and group counseling in areas such as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), alcohol and drug assessment, and suicide prevention referrals. All services are free of cost and are strictly confidential.
