FAQs

Q: Is Naperville Responds for our Veterans a new organization?
A: In some ways, yes. We’ve been around since 2009

Q: How was NRFOV started?
A: Actually we began as a natural follow-on from our predecessor organization, Naperville Responds to Katrina. After completing 21 homes in Pass Christian Mississippi, many of the same Naperville area home builders, realtors and civic leaders saw the need to assist returning military men and woman from Iraq and Afghanistan.
Q: What exactly does NRFOV do for our community?
A: We provide construction related home repair services for any veteran from any military conflict America has needed men and women to fight for our interests. With the assistance from our local Home Depot and other similar construction material companies, we repair or replace leaky roofs, windows or doors; build wheelchair ramps, widen doorways, and adjust counter top heights; remodel kitchens and bathrooms to make them all handicap accessible.

Additionally, our ultimate goal is to provide a mortgage free home for a disabled veteran and his family. With luck, hard work and community involvement, we hope to provide several such homes for our returning veterans in need.

Q: What percentage of monies raised is used for salaries and fund raising efforts vs. going directly to the military personnel you support?
A: None of our board members received any monetary compensation. Together with our volunteers, we hold various fund raising events throughout the year. During our last audit, approximately 90% of all monies raised went to assist our military men and woman in various service projects. The other 10% paid for fundraising and promotional expenses.
Q: Are you a not-for-profit organization?
A: Yes, we are registered with the state of Illinois and the IRS as a 501(C) 3 organization.
Q: What geographies does NRFOV serve?
A: The greater Naperville area including many of the surrounding Chicago Suburbs.

Effective May 15, 2015, the NRFOV Board of Directors formally approved the area that NRFOV would be serving going forward, in order to best assist our local veterans in need and make best use of NRFOV resources. The area is now defined by the attached Exhibit A that clearly reflects by zip codes those areas that NRFOV will service. Properties located in any one of these zip codes and owned by eligible veterans may be considered for possible repair by NRFOV.  CLICK HERE FOR EXHIBIT A AND ZIP CODES.
