THIS place matters - We need your help.

Midwest Veterans Closet, Impacting Veterans Lives, Inc is a 501c3 charity (47-2126427).

Always with integrity, we collaborate with people like you to impact the lives of families of heroes who serve America.

We serve them with weather appropriate clothing, household items, furniture, FOOD, and job leads and housing when available, but always HOPE and DIGNITY. 

We are located in North Chicago, Illinois, near the Captain James A. Lovell Federal Healthcare Center and Naval Station Great Lakes. We are proud of our Drop-In Center and Career Closet where Veterans and active military come for basic computer training, job search assistance and sometimes placement, professional wear for job searches and interviews, a cup of coffee and snacks when donated, lots of conversation, and very much needed camaraderie.
We receive generous donations of 
new and nearly new weather appropriate clothing, housewares, and furniture, however, we are in need of monetary contributions to keep our doors open. 

Would you please make a contribution to this organization for this much-needed service to our military and Veterans? No amount is too small.
Visit us anytime - no appointment necessary. We do what we do whether you're looking or not.

We would also like to know if you are aware of any military in need, or home bound Veterans which we can serve. Click this link to send a confidential email.
