CHICAGO, IL (12/09/2013)(readMedia)-- The Illinois Joining Forces (IJF) 2013 Annual Summit will be held on Tuesday, Dec. 10, 2013 at the Union League Club of Chicago, helping to bring together a state-wide network of over 200 military- and veteran-serving organizations dedicated to helping them navigate the "sea of goodwill".

IJF is a nation-leading program through which more than 200 military- and veteran-serving organizations work together to create a "no wrong door" system of support in Illinois. The Summit will serve to facilitate further collaboration between these organizations as they set programs and priorities for 2014. This year also marks the launch of version 2.0 of the IJF website, through which Illinois Service Members, Veterans, and their Families can better search for and connect directly with local support and services. There is no cost for these services and individuals do NOT have to sign-up to use the "Find Resources" section of the website to search for services and programs from IJF member organizations - or to receive help directly the IJF Support Team in finding the right resource.

IJF was announced in 2012 as a public–private partnership established by the Illinois Department of Military Affairs (IDMA) and Department of Veterans' Affairs (IDVA) to improve the quality of life for thousands military members and veterans throughout the state.
