In 2007, Volunteers of America of Illinois was awarded a grant from the Department of Labor to implement a Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program (HVRP). The goal of the HVRP program is to provide the training, opportunities and support necessary to assist homeless veterans in achieving economic self-sufficiency and stability through viable, long-term employment.
 
 
In August of this year, Volunteers of America of Illinois applied for and was awarded a $25,000 grant through the Illinois Department of Veterans Affairs Cash Grants program, to provide the following assistance to the participants in our HVRP program: 1) food and transportation during training and the beginning stages of employment, 2) work clothing and equipment, 3) housing materials such as furnishings and allowance for rent deposits, and 4) financial literacy component to our training.
