The Illinois Joining forces Foundation will partner with the Illinois Library Association, DePaul University's Egan Center, and the University of Illinois - Springfield's GIS Lab to identify the organic assets within the seven most veteran-populated regions in Illinois, and identify gaps in services to the community of active duty service members, veterans, and their families (SMVF). The project will develop a process for conducting asset mapping within a community of available resources that serve veterans, and will leverage existing museum, library, and community assets to support partners as they help to connect with veterans seeking services. The partners plan to establish a veteran support community that is fully connected and integrated into a statewide network of veteran service providers, libraries, archives, museums, and community veteran service organizations and to share this model and their findings with the museum, library and community development fields
