Free Weekly Military and Veteran Support Group Meets at One Hope United Offices in Lake County
Lake County, Ill. (Aug. 19, 2011)—One Hope United and Lake-McHenry Veterans and Family Services sponsor the Veteran and Military Families Support Group at locations throughout Lake County. The ongoing, weekly group offers support for members of the military, veterans and their families who are dealing with the overwhelming stresses from the military and veteran lifestyle.
“It is help from those who have been there,” said Jill Novacek, director of programs for One Hope United. “Just talking with others who share your experience and concerns can make it more manageable.”
The Tuesday evening support group meets from 6:00-7:30 p.m. at One Hope United, 2115 Ernie Krueger Circle, Waukegan, IL. The Wednesday morning support group meets from 11:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m. at One Hope United’s Richardson House, 215 N. Milwaukee Ave., Lake Villa, IL. The groups are also made possible by a partnership with the Lake County Health Department.
The groups share information and ideas about how to care for themselves and their families. Each meeting is focused on the needs of the participants, as opposed to facilitator’s agenda. Linkages to other service needs are also available. Child care is provided as well as a meal. No registration needed.
