COVID-19 Update - Keeping our volunteers and the veterans we serve safe has always been our priority, and we continue to adjust activities accordingly.

Responding with Care: Providing the personal hygiene products, clothing, food and other essentials for the basic dignity and wellness of veterans, and their families.

Responding with Comfort: Helping veterans, and their families, feel safe and find them safe shelter or improve their living conditions.

Responding with Compassion: Aiding veterans, and their families, in a moment of need or to prevent a crisis in manner that will help them stay or becoming self-sufficient.


Making literally Life-Saving differences, as with an Army Veteran who was living in a van with his wife and their two children have attested too after the Foundation helped provide safe housing, food and medicine as well as employment prospects for him and his wife, and the gas money to get to appointments, interviews, and their new jobs.


Coming to the aid of a veteran in need or crisis are with the long term results and rewards of them staying or becoming self-reliant.


With IJF’s involvement, increasing United Relief Foundation’s efficiency to response to veterans, and their families, in need extends outside Illinois like Veteran Christopher, his wife, and 2 young children residing in Arkansas or Michigan Veteran, Timothy, his wife, and 3 young children.
