HVAF of Indiana, Inc. is there to help by assisting veterans daily in providing housing and essential services while promoting self-sufficiency.

Common Hope
April 6, 2010

I recently worked as a short term volunteer with Common Hope in Guatemala. I became particularly interested in their mission and decided to help in construction. I also got the opportunity to work with children and help them build airplanes in San Miguel. I found the experience thoroughly rewarding and very enjoyable. During my time working with Common Hope I have been inspired by the efforts that are being made to improve lives and educate families. I have been proud to be able to contribute to such a hard working team. From my time in Guatemala I have gained knowledge, experience, new skills, many happy memories, and a number of great friends.
