HVAF OF INDIANA INC
October 13, 2011

I am a Peer Counselor and Certified Recovery Specialist of the State of Indiana. My job consist of helping veterans put their lives back together while in our housing program by educating and helping them hone their coping, social and various other skills needed to function in society. Skills that were forgotten or put on the back burner due to homelessness, mental health,( addiction issuues ranging from drugs and alcohol to sex and food, yes food all these things can cause health problems. Being a former homeless veteran who dealt with all these issues and made my way back with help from organizations like HVAF I see first hand the accomplishment we as a team make on a daily basis, and I am very proud to be a part of this team for the past six years. I shared a one and a half year journey with a veteran who came into our program on disability, with a bad herion addiction, is bipolar, homeless and attempted to take his life with a gun, today he is working and off disability, has had his own apartment for over a year almost 2 years clean and sober, taking his medication like he should and is leading a productive life.
