About Us

 

Since 1987, the Veterans Assistance Commission of Kankakee County (VACKC) has served low-income, homeless, disabled, at-risk veterans, and their families.  The VACKC is funded by a tax levy through Kankakee County.

Honorably discharged veterans may be eligible for services, subject to program requirements, length of service standards, and income guidelines.

VACKC collaborates with the VA Medical Center, the VA Regional Office, Illinois Department of Employment Security, and various other community non-profit organizations. 

 

 

Mission Statement:

With mutual respect, dignity, and acceptance, through innovative and collaborative services, the Veterans Assistance Commission of Kankakee County will provide tools for positive life changes to veterans and their families.
