The Eagle's Nest, Located in East St Louis, IL

We help shelter and support
Illinois veterans

The Eagle’s Nest is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization with a mission to empower male homeless Veterans to achieve their highest level of self-sufficiency, economic independence, and rejoin the community as productive members of society. In November of 2009, The Eagle’s Nest opened their doors to The Joseph Center, a 26-bed, secure transitional housing facility in East St. Louis. It provides supportive housing to homeless veterans and is the only center of its kind in Southern Illinois.

We believe that by providing our U.S. Veterans a safe and comfortable space in which to live, we will be providing them the dignity and high quality of life they so deserve.

Our Community Vision

We envision a transitional housing facility where the community is greatly involved with our Veteran activities, and where Veterans can be part of their communities.  We are committed to making this happen in East St. Louis, and invite you to be a part of this venture here at The Joseph Center.

All persons will be treated fairly and equally without regard to race, color, sex, family status, disability, national origin, or source.
