A VETERANS PATH TO HOPE, HEALTH & HAPPINESS

Many veterans experience unexpected barriers to success. Our goal is to provide them with hope, health and happiness by helping them gain access to:

  • Employment assistance for homeless veterans
  • Transitional living shelter
  • Support and education for veteran caregivers
  • Outdoors program for camaraderie and connection
  • Housing assistance prior to or following eviction
  • Delivery of food, furniture and household items
  • Peer support, counseling and food pantry
  • Supportive housing program

After helping veterans for nearly 25 years, we’re making a lot of exciting new changes so we can help them for at least another 25 years. Our name TLS Veterans will be changing to Veterans Path to Hope to more accurately reflect the work we do with and on behalf of veterans in need. We’ve also moved our offices to 805 S. McHenry Ave., Suite D, Crystal Lake IL to allow easier and greater access to the agency. And as you can see, we have a new logo and website which will help you stay connected with Veterans Path to Hope.

Veterans Path to Hope is a non-profit resource that was created to provide hope, strengthen confidence, improve family life and uncover the options needed to meet the physical, emotional and other life challenges that many military veterans face in their daily lives.

We recognize that life can be challenging and we work hard to forge a tight bond of trust with veterans who come seeking a new path to overcoming current barriers. Our staff have experience, directly or indirectly, with military life and can understand and empathize with many of the issues they encounter.

We listen to all veterans’ needs, be they major or minor, emotional or physical, and develop true partnerships. Together, we find options as we personally commit to providing the support a veteran might need to maintain, improve, and, in some cases, even save his or her life.
