Dubuque's Veteran’s Freedom Center exists to meet the needs of all military active duty, reserve and Honorably Discharged Tri-State military veterans past and present. It is a place where fellow veterans interact, network together and provide the camaraderie that all have shared while proudly serving our great country. The center also offers veterans a community room, a full kitchen and dining area, a woodworking and scroll sawing shop, and various arts and craft opportunities. Leisure activities such as pool, darts, shuffleboard, cards, television, music, and computer usage are also accessible to our veterans.
Our “Operation We Care” program supports those veterans and / or veteran’s family members that have special needs whereby all other means of assistance is not available or has been exhausted. The program provides financial and other supportive services to our veterans “in need”. Some examples of such support has been assisting homeless veterans and families, financial aid for rent and mortgage payments, transportation assistance, pharmaceutical products, home utility assistance, food, and clothing. Re-furbished scooters, wheelchairs and walkers are available and provided to the veteran or veteran's family member in need. Representatives from the “Operation We Care” Board of Directors oversee all applications for assistance. All requests are handled with the utmost discretion and confidential.
