Veteran’s Assistance


Hoosier Veterans Assistance Foundation, Inc. (HVAF) provides housing and reintegration services to veterans experiencing homelessness and administers programs and services to prevent at-risk veterans from becoming homeless. HVAF has three designated employment specialists who help veterans overcome barriers to regular employment. The emphasis on helping homeless veterans secure employment is enhanced coordination with various veterans’ service programs. Since hiring additional staff in this department, HVAF has tripled its reach from 2013 and now plans to serve 300 veterans through the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust which provides grants to nonprofit organizations that focus on providing education and/or training for individuals to obtain gainful employment.
