A Program for Outreach and Support of the Illinois Army National Guard Members
No one knows more about the issues facing a Veteran, in combat or on the home front, than another Veteran
If you have prior military service and wish to continue to serve, we need you! You will make a difference in someone else’s life and continue to grow strong bonds within the military community. We build on what you already know, and train you in peer support and navigating community resources. You’ll do everything from lend an open ear, to assisting with employment, finances, education, benefits, legal, mental health and substance abuse issues.
For more information about applying, please contact the Program Coordinator at 312-265-9101 or email ILW2W@hdadvocates.org.
DO YOU NEED HELP?
Help is just a phone call away. If you or a service member you know needs help, call the Warrior to Warrior Volunteer Veteran program at (312) 265-9101. You’ll be matched with a Veteran trained to help you find resources for a variety of readjustment issues, such as financial benefits, educational goals, emotional challenges, substance abuse, legal or job issues. If you are a Soldier or Veteran in emotional distress or thinking about suicide, call the National Suicide Lifeline at (800) 273-TALK (8255). If this is an emergency, call 911.
