Veterans Drop-In Center

Welcome to the Veterans Drop-In Center!

“We may not know them all, but we owe them all.”

The Veterans’ Drop-In Center – a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation – was started in 2009 when a group of caring, compassionate people decided that Rockford area veterans and their families needed a place to gather and meet with their peers – without some of the formalities that come with other veterans’ organizations.

We offer many things at the Center, including but not limited to:

  • Fun with your fellow veterans
  • Computer classes
  • Board games
  • Lunch at 12:30 pm, Dinner at 5 pm
  • Haircuts (offered monthly – first Tuesday)
  • Onsite meetings with VA and Vet Center representatives (weekly)
  • Direct referrals to area veterans’ resources
  • Local musicians…
  • …and much, much more!

Do you want to know the best part? It costs you NOTHING. Zip. Zilch. Nada. No fees, dues, memberships, or meetings. Come and go as you please. It is our gift to you for your service to our country and its people.

On your first visit, however, we will ask to see your DD214 or VA ID card and ask that you fill out a short form for our internal records.

That being said, have a look around! See you at the Center Monday – Thursday | 12:00 – 6:00 pm for June, July, and August!
