We’re a community of military Veterans, family members and supporters who share a common passion for helping those who have served in our military. We provide opportunities for Veterans to meet, network, learn and build meaningful relationships with one another to help take control of their transition throughout life.
Help make an impact in Chicago and support one of our causes
Chicago Veterans Ruck March (Postponed)
(Please Note: Due to the COVID-19 and the safety of all participants, we are postponing our May 22nd Ruck March.) Every Memorial Day weekend, thousands of veterans, family members, and friends from all over the United States come together to walk 20 miles through Chicago to raise awareness around PTSD and help end the Veteran suicide epidemic. According to the Department of Veteran Affairs, an average of 20 Veterans commit suicide each day. Join us as we raise awareness and help end Veteran suicide.
"Our Mission is to Empower Military Veterans to take Control of their Transition Throughout Life.”
Empowerment is based on the idea that giving Veterans the resources, opportunities, purpose, and motivation they need to become more productive in their communities.
We define empower as sharing information and building meaningful relationships to help take control of one’s transition throughout life and their overall well-being.
The concept of empower consists of three core components – Camaraderie, Employment and Education.
SOCIAL SUPPORT SYSTEM
We strive to help maintain the physical, mental, and emotional well-being of Veterans.
Creating pipelines into careers by helping mitigate hiring barriers Veterans face.
EDUCATIONAL PEER SUPPORT
We use a unique Peer-to-Peer and group mentorship approach.
