cindyGiving DuPage is introducing a new AmeriCorps program called Frontline Families. The  program engages and trains  veterans, service members and their families to become Volunteer Leaders in our community. Once trained, the veterans and military families will lead volunteer teams (military & civilian) in community service projects to tackle some our county’s most pressing challenges.

How does  the program support the reintegration process?
Reintegration is a process that currently requires an extensive amount of time and effort; our program will serve as a bridge that will lessen this burden by connecting the military with the community through civic engagement, improving the physical and mental well-being of the military and veteran population through social and physical activities.

Who implemented the program?
Frontline Families is an AmeriCorps national service program implemented by Points of light.
