Our Mission and Vision
Investing in, learning from, and exporting successful models of Veteran support will enable Veterans to become strategic assets in their local and national communities.
Robert R. McCormick was a citizen soldier who believed in service to country and had a lifelong commitment to those who serve in our nation's armed forces. Today, we continue this commitment to serving those who have served our country and also their families. In particular, our nation's younger veterans are experiencing new and complex challenges as they transition to civilian life. To help veterans realize their full potential and to honor their service and sacrifice, we focus on three key areas:
- Create a high-performing system of care in local communities providing veterans access to a range of comprehensive services at the local level.
- Invest in capacity building for critical, high-performing nonprofits focusing on veterans in the Chicagoland area.
- Develop learning communities comprised of nonprofit, government and transitional veteran serving organizations to identify best practices in services delivery
