Midwest CareCenter is proud to be the first hospice and palliative care program in Illinois to be admitted for membership to Illinois Joining Forces. Illinois Joining Forces (IJF) is a statewide, public-private network of veteran- and military-serving organizations that collaborate in person and online to help service members, veterans, and their families navigate the "sea of goodwill." No one organization can do it all. But veterans shouldn't have to wander from office to office—or website to website—to figure out who does what, and who can best meet their needs. By searching the IJF website or by asking the IJF site support team for help, service providers, veterans and military families open one door... and find a whole world of support. www.illinoisjoiningforces.org
We are also proud to partner with Military Outreach USA, a faith-based non-profit organization that serves our active military, veterans and their families by connecting them with individuals and faith communities committed to providing help and hope. The organization is building a national network of Military Friendly Churches and Military Friendly Businesses that is nearly 1000 organizations strong. Military Outreach USA exists to encourage, engage, educate, and equip individuals and churches throughout the nation to provide a support role to our military community, comprised of our military (Active, Guard, and Reserves), veterans, and their families impacted by the visible and invisible wounds of military service. http://www.militaryoutreachusa.org.
Midwest CareCenter is one of the only nonprofit hospices in the Chicago area that has an official Veterans program registered through the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization.
