Welcome to the Veterans
Drop-In Center !!!


Welcome to our website! We are so excited to finally have a home on the Internet. If you're not familiar with us, please allow me to tell you a bit about us and why we are here.

The Veterans' Drop-In Center came onto the scene in 2011, 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 usage
  • A pool table
  • Television / lounge area
  • Dinner (if you're around at dinnertime)
  • Weekly Tai Chi classes
  • Haircuts (offered twice a month)
  • 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!
