For #MotivationMonday, meet Navy veteran Sherry🇺🇸In 1989, Sherry enlisted in the U.S. Navy. She spent four years repairing submarines in Scotland.After receiving her honorable discharge, Sherry struggled transitioning to civilian life.“It was a difficult transition,” Sherry said. “It’s still difficult even to this day.”In 2019, Sherry moved from Philadelphia to Indianapolis to live closer to family. After living with family for a few years, she wanted to live on her own but needed help. She reached out to HVAF and her case manager set her up in one of our temporary houses.When living there for a few months, she loved being able to come to the pantry to receive her necessary food, hygiene, and clothing items. The VA was able to move her into her own apartment, but she still received employment assistance through HVAF’s VetWorks program.VetWorks – Veterans Workforce Renewing Knowledge and Skills – is an intensive 3 phase work, learn and earn program designed to skill up our veterans to achieve their earning potential. Veterans complete on-the-job training, have access to education/certifications and receive assistance with obtaining a good and promising job.Sherry completed her internship through HVAF’s I.T. Department – while receiving mentorship from I.T. Coordinator Dewayne.“He was a great guy to work with,” Sherry said. “It meant a lot. Dewayne is a good resource.”Because of her experience working with Cisco phones during her I.T. internship, that stuck out in her resume when interviewing with Bell Techlogix. For the very first time in her life, she now runs of their departments!“I’m super excited,” Sherry said. “It’s my season! God has truly been good to me so I’m just trying to embrace it.”This is also her first time to receive any sort of assistance. She thanks HVAF and the VA for getting to where she is today.“They have been awesome and it really means a lot to me,” Sherry said. “It’s been truly a blessing in my life.” ... See MoreSee Less
