About VAC

Since 1987, the Veterans Assistance Commission of Kankakee County (VACKC) has served low-income, homeless, disabled, at-risk veterans, and their families.  The VACKC is funded by a tax levy through Kankakee County.

Honorably discharged veterans may be eligible for services, subject to program requirements, length of service standards, and income guidelines.

VACKC collaborates with the VA Medical Center, the VA Regional Office, Illinois Department of Employment Security, and various other community non-profit organizations.

Mission

With mutual respect, dignity, and acceptance, through innovative and collaborative services, the Veterans Assistance Commission of Kankakee County will provide tools for positive life changes to veterans and their families.

 

Services

These claims for non-service connected or service-connected afflictions will be processed in a professional and compassionate manner. You, the veteran, helped assure our freedoms and it is our responsibility to give back. The task that’s ahead of you will never be as great as the power that’s behind you.

We will answer your questions, prepare the needed documents, help you secure any necessary supporting documents, and provide follow-up services on your pending claim.
