Help SERV provide affordable housing to Military Veterans.

All donations are tax deductable and help to provide affordable housing  to veterans and their families throughout Illinois.

About Us

We’re a small organization of vets and volunteers dedicated to providing a road to self sustainability for some of our country’s finest men and women.  As a not-for-profit we work to acquire housing at low costs and through tax-deductable donations , make any needed repairs and upgrades, then place qualified veterans in those homes.  We work to provide a path for qualified vets to purchase homes or simply a find place to get on their feet and move on to other opportunities.  In addition to housing, our not-for-profit network makes referrals to other local and national veterans’ outreach programs for things like employment, education  and training.  Those who’ve served have given so much.  This is our chance to give back. 

Our board of directors and volunteers have a diverse background that include real estate, technology, business management, social work, sales, marketing, and politics.  They’ve committed themselves to working to help our vets.
