Prince Home

Prince HomeThe Prince Home at Manteno is a program for homeless and disabled veterans co-located with the Veterans' Home in Manteno, Illinois.   Opened in 2007, the Prince Home provides housing and supportive services for homeless Illinois Veterans, helping them cope with many issues, to include Post Traumatic Stress, substance abuse, and other challenges.  In addition to providing a safe and secure living environment for homeless veterans, the program helps equip the veterans to achieve individual growth and independence.  This is done by fostering integrity, respect, and dignity, with therapeutic and supportive services. More than three-quarters of the veterans who complete the Prince Home program go on to live productive and independent lives.   In addition, leadership at the Home contributes to the mission of reducing veteran homelessness statewide by working with and advising community service providers, private organizations and other state agencies on state and federal veteran programs.  Volunteer work, employment and treatment compliance is correlated to the vision of total independence.
