THIS place matters and we need your help.

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

As we all follow the impact of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), Midwest Veterans Closet wants you to know that health and well-being, yours and ours, is of utmost importance.  Like you, we’re keeping a close eye on the quickly changing landscape of how to prioritize what is best for ourselves, for you, and our community.

Midwest Veterans Closet is open Fridays from 10 a.m. to 12 noon for food only due to Covid-19 (Coronavirus).

We are following the Governor’s ‘Stay Safe at Home’ orders. Check back here or our Facebook page, Midwest Veterans Closet for updates.

We miss you and can’t wait to see you again soon.

We are NOT accepting donations until further notice.


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

We serve them with weather appropriate clothing, household items, furniture, FOOD, and job and housing leads 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-duty 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 available, 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 would also like to know if you are aware of any military personnel in need, or home-bound Veterans which we can serve. Click this link to send a confidential email.

REAL service to Veterans and active-duty military - just ask them.
