The city of Chicago has enhanced its 311 intake assessment and training process to better identify military veterans and active duty service members so they can be more easily connected to existing services and resources. Chicago residents who call 311 to request a range of services, including homeless prevention, employment services, senior well-being checks, emergency food, and crisis referral services, will be asked by a 311 operator if they are a veteran or active duty service member so they may be connected to existing resources and programs available to veterans and current military service members. The City's enhanced 311 process will be able to track and report on the level and type of needs of services requested. For more information, dial 311 in Chicago.
