McHenry County TLS Veterans

TLS Veterans was founded in 1996 by a group of McHenry County veterans led by Alan Belcher, who served in combat in Vietnam and is agency’s current executive director.

Each year, TLS:

  • Shelters up to 45 homeless veterans at New Horizons, a 20-bed transitional-living center that debuted in 2001.

  • Assesses about 300 participants for employment placement through a Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program that has been funded by the Department of Labor since 2009. Recently, the DOL recognized TLS as “a national role model . . . in HVRP operations.”

  • Feeds  125+ low-income veterans and their families via a monthly mobile food pantry.

  • Fields more than 9,000 inquiries about services at a Veterans Resource Center that provides mental healthcare to veterans and their families.

  • Remains connected to at least a dozen New Horizons “graduates” through an aftercare program that offers case management and crisis intervention.
