In January, the REALTOR® Foundation presented HVAF with a check for $6,000 to support our Residential, Employment, Substance Abuse Treatment (REST) program.
REST is a recovery-dynamics based supportive housing program. The program’s goal is to maintain sobriety while obtaining employment and permanent housing while veterans receive individual and group counseling, psycho-educational classes and intensive case management.
This was the first time HVAF applied for this grant for their REST program in which it was approved. Our mission is one the REALTOR® Foundation stands behind as the Foundation works to mobilize the real estate community to raise funds and foster support for organizations that transition central Indiana’s homeless into safe and secure housing.
“The REALTOR® Foundation is proud to be a part of local efforts to reduce homelessness among our nation’s heroes,” says REALTOR® Foundation Manager Gabie Benson. “Although many cities have made tremendous strides towards reducing veterans’ homelessness, Indianapolis continues to be a community that is working towards that goal.”
