Upcoming Program:

Date: Tuesday, July 11th, 2017

Speaker:  Olivia Laschober

Veterans Assistance Commission of Kendall County

Presentation: We’re all intertwined: Veterans, their families, our services, and now, your business!

More Detail:
We guarantee that everyone is either a veteran, related to a veteran, or knows a veteran; after all, there are over 8,000 in Kendall County, IL alone. Let’s collaborate and increase support for vets and their families within the community!

The Veterans Assistance Commission of Kendall County will elaborate on the FREE services available to all claimants who walk through our door.  The Department of Veterans Affairs can have convoluted language regarding paperwork and benefits. We assist in assessing all variables specific to the individual and decipher benefits on the local, state, and federal level to ensure that all appropriate benefits are being sought and obtained.

Our office had previously deemed 2016 the “Year of Outreach”. Since then, appointments went up 35% in 2016 (compared to 2015/before outreach), and 2017 has thus far yielded an increase of 149% (compared to 2015/before outreach).

With growth like this, we will be inviting business and other organizations to partake in our new partnership that will be revealed at this luncheon! Don’t miss out!
