Military Outreach USA

Northbrook, IL 60062
Military Outreach USA is a national service organization dedicated to providing resources and support to caring partners who envision a nation where no one in the Military Community lacks the mental, spiritual, physical or material support needed to live a full and productive life.
WHAT WE DO
As a faith-based organization strategically based in Northbrook, Illinois, Military Outreach USA develops resources, tools and programs to be used to serve the Military Community. These programs and resources are then shared at no cost with our partners.
We do this by:
Each year — in communities throughout the nation — our partners collect move-in-essential items, clothing, food and more to be brought to VA facilities for distribution to qualified Veterans in need. Military Outreach USA actively engages with our partners to help those in the Military Community overcome the invisible wounds of war including Moral Injury. By engaging in a holistic approach in working with our partners the Military Community is served.
We partner, resource and empower our partners through training, mentoring and coaching so they can enhance their presence in their communities. The strategy works best when our partners work with others within their community. By learning about the various resources and tools available our partners can best care for all the needs of those who have served. Our partners serve through their caring.
Military Outreach USA has a formal partnership with the Department of Veterans Affairs so that we and our partners can work closely with every VA medical facility to ensure Veterans at the local level are being served. Our partners at the community level--houses of worship, businesses, civic groups, schools and individuals--utilize the resources and tools we provide to help meet the needs of Veterans at the local level. By partnering with caring groups and individuals we are able to serve.

NOT A CHARITY, AN EMPOWERING COMMUNITY TRANSFORMATION
One of the goals of Military Outreach USA is to break the cycle of homelessness by working with the Department of Veterans Affairs, our Partners and VA facilities to meet the needs of Veterans.
Veterans who were previously trapped in homelessness can now be reintegrated back into society.
Adopt-a-VA is the basis for a brighter future, built on a hand up, not a handout.
