Rep. Ives Honors Local Veteran, Co-Founder of Midwest Shelter for Homeless Veterans

State Rep. Jeanne Ives (R-Wheaton) spoke on the House Floor on Tuesday to recognize Mr. Bob Adams, a U.S. Navy combat veteran of the Vietnam era and co-founder of the Midwest Shelter for Homeless Veterans in Wheaton. The shelter is celebrating their 10th anniversary serving the needs of veterans in our community.

Midwest Shelter for Homeless Veterans mission is to provide veterans and their families with housing and supportive services that lead to self-sufficiency. They work to ensure that no veteran is left behind due to homelessness, joblessness, poverty and/or mental-health issues. Click below to watch the video of Rep.
