Legacy Corps: Serving Those Who’ve Served

At Legacy Corps, we understand that veterans, active military personnel and their families live to serve others. They rarely reach out for help. And that’s why Legacy Corps is so important. And why Northwest Compass is proud to serve as host site for this program.

Legacy Corps members provide 8-10 hours of companionship and non-medical services weekly. And that means caregivers have time to recharge. Some services members may provide include:

  • In-home respite care
  • Childcare respite
  • Education and information dissemination for caregivers
  • Transportation to medical/other appointments

These services benefit veterans, military and their families across Northern Illinois. And they are provided free of charge. This is only possible because of dedicated volunteers like Peggy.
