Veterans in Supportive Situations

These are veterans who are receiving some type of support from a veterans service organization but have needs beyond the help they are receiving.

How We Are Making A Difference

Healthy state of mind, body, and spirit: By providing veterans the health and wellness tools to increase their ability to be self-sufficient, more involved in the wellbeing of other veterans as well as being positive contributors to their communities and society.

Inner Voice Chicago’s Eddie Beard Vet House (EBVH) is serving as a model in the development of the Foundation health and wellness program for transitional living environments.


EBVH provides up to 35 male Veterans experiencing homelessness with a safe, comfortable environment where they can live for up to 24 months while receiving supportive services.


The Foundation’s Horticultural-Holistic program shall provide veterans with health and wellness tools to help veterans increase their ability to be self-sufficient and be more involved in the well-being of other veterans.

Activities and Updates

United Relief Foundation’s Eddie Beard Vet House health and wellness project continues to reach our Horticultural-Holistic program success markers.


Engagements with EBVH veterans and the development of health and wellness tools will continue through the colder months.


Plans for 2022 are underway to make the garden even larger to plant more vegetables and provide space for more veterans to be engaged together at one time.
