HVAF of Indiana
HVAF Employment Program
HVAF of Indiana provides services to homeless and near-homeless veterans and families in Indianapolis, Indiana. This NFL-BWF Salute to Service grant supplements federal funding to support homeless veterans, because many homeless veterans do not satisfy the federal criteria for homelessness. Veterans who have found shelter with family or friends, veterans sleeping on a couch or in their car, or members of the National Guard who do not meet the definition of veteran. This grant will permit HVAF to provide employment services to twenty at-risk post-9/11 veterans who do not qualify for similar federal programs. The HVAF services include transitional housing with intensive case management, rapid rehousing and rental assistance, and employment services. These employment services will help veterans gain the skills necessary to obtain long-term employment in sustainable industries in the Indianapolis region such as IT or logistics and help them be successful in their job search by providing resume prep, interview coaching, and new clothes.
