Midwest Shelter for Homeless Veterans
Midwest Shelter for Homeless Veterans, founded
by Vietnam War veteran Bob Adams and Gulf War
veteran Dirk Enger, is a registered 501 (c)(3)
organization that provides transitional and
affordable housing programs and supportive
services to U.S. Veterans of any era to help
them out of homelessness and back to useful,
productive lives. Located in Wheaton, Illinois,
the Midwest Shelter has named its homes in honor
of two Wheaton North High School graduates who
made the ultimate sacrifice for their country:
Cpl. Nicholas Larson, who was killed
in the line of duty in Iraq in 2004
Sgt. Robert Miller, a Medal of Honor
who was killed in Afghanistan in 2008
