Featherfist has expanded its Veterans' Services programs from one(1) in 2004 to five(5) in 2012, and maintains those five programs today. Former military service members comprise a large portion of the homeless population in Chicago. Many of those homeless veterans live with PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) and/or physical disabilities. These veterans require specialized and comprehensive case management to address their barriers and bring them back into mainstream society. Featherfist, by utilizing case managers who are former service members, and networking with local VA Medical Center, has been able to successfully house many veteran households. Because of our success rate in housing homeless veterans and assisting them to maintain housing, Featherfist was awarded the only TIP (Transition in Place) Veteran housing program in Illinois in 2012 and renewed in 2015. We recognize the importance of providing the highest quality services to this very vulnerable population and will continue to serve the homeless veterans in Chicago until there are no more homeless veterans to serve.
