HVAF of Indiana
Veteran Employment Program
The 2020 annual one-night count of people experiencing homeless in Marion County, IN identified 205 veterans accounting for 16% of the entire homeless population in the county. According to the Indiana University Public Policy Institute, the true estimate of the number of individuals experiencing homelessness in Marion County annually is three to five times the Point-In-Time count, meaning approximately 600-1000 veterans experienced homelessness in Indianapolis in 2020. HVAF of Indiana uses a holistic approach to serve veterans experiencing homelessness or at-risk of becoming homeless, including flexible funding to ensure veterans with high barriers to employment have every resource necessary to find employment. This NFL-BWF grant will provide education, training, work-related items, and case management for 35 post-9/11 veterans to secure full-time employment.
