After attending the Heroes Welcome Home educational program earlier this year I was inspired to share the tips and resources for helping U.S. military veterans and service members with readers of Illinois REALTOR® Magazine. Below are a few of the resources mentioned in the story.
There are specific housing programs for military veterans and special considerations for dealing with someone who may have a disability. Heroes Welcome Home covered these and more as part of a pilot project of the Chicago Association of REALTORS® supported by the National Association of REALTORS®, Illinois Associations of REALTORS®, and local boards including Mainstreet, North Shore-Barrington and NorthWest Chicagoland.
I am especially proud of the Illinois REALTOR® Heroes page where we show photos of some members of the Illinois Association of REALTORS® who have served our country so well. If you are an IAR member and have served in the armed forces please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org. We want to honor all of you who take defending property rights to a new level! Thank you for all you have done for us!
