AVCO: Austin Veterans Community Organization

South Austin Neighborhood Association (SANA) supports a Veterans group call Austin Veterans Community Organization (AVCO).

AVCO has been in existence since the summer of 2019 with monthly meetings at The Veterans Peace Garden located at 5413 West Madison, Chicago, IL. 60644.


The group recently held a Grab-n-Go event for Veterans on November 11, 2020, Veterans Day. The event gave Veterans a bag containing important resources from the VA, Legal Services, food and surprise gifts. It was a great success. In 2021, the group plans to have further events that will service Veterans.

If you are a Veteran or know of one who would like to join this group, please go to the Contact page and sign-up or email us at VETERANPEACEGARDEN@GMAIL.COM.
