Review for HVAF OF INDIANA INC, Indianapolis, IN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am US Navy veteran and have witnessed firsthand many sailors who have struggled with their return to civilian life. Some have taken to drugs and alcohol as methods of dealing with such an abrupt change in lifestyle; as a result of these new behaviors, many have found themselves forced to leave their loved ones and turn to life on the streets. HVAF and its staff help these homeless veterans (some of whom may actually qualify for VA benefits) to begin the process of taking control of their lives (emotionally, physically, spiritually, financially). HVAF staff understand that it is a process, with some setbacks along the way. However, the clients (veterans) understand that this chance might be their last and most want to take full advantage of the opportunities that HVAF provides.
