For the third year in a row, Cook County Commissioner Dan Patlak is again RUNNING! To End Homelessness for Veterans. He graciously shared his story and stated that several years ago a friend introduced him to A Safe Haven and invited him for a tour. What impressed him the most were the services available for veterans and other vulnerable homeless men, women and children. The mission of A Safe Haven's work is not just to provide a warm bed and food, but to offer a holistic approach to restore the life of the person.
"When individuals and families leave A Safe Haven, they are self-sufficient and are not in need of government assistance. It's a Win/Win for the public and for the Individual. Veterans have given so much of themselves to this country. More than most people can imagine. It's important that we are there to provide Veterans with the support they need when they are in distress. They deserve it! A Safe Haven programs offer individuals a continuum of care to ensure they have the tools they need to become economicly self-sufficient" said Commissioner Patlak.
With an onsite U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs Community Resource and Referral Center, ASHF streamlines access to VA Benefits and supportive services for Veterans, with the goal of stabilizing their lives and getting them permanently housed as soon as possible, while connecting them with the resources needed to ensure they are able to maintain independency.
