HVAF held its first ever legislative breakfast on November 8th to share information with our state elected officials. Several members of the Marion County delegation met with HVAF board members and staff for breakfast and a tour of the facility.
We were pleased to share information with our elected officials about our mission and the men and women we serve. Speaker Brian Bosma, Representatives Ed DeLaney, Karlee Macer, Cherrish Pryor, Mike Speedy, and Senators Jean Breaux, Michael Crider, and Pat Miller joined HVAF board members and staff.
“Without the tremendous support we receive from our community and elected officials, we would not be able to fulfill our mission,” says Public Policy Coordinator Emmy Hildebrand. “I’m grateful for the members of the Marion County delegation that took the time to learn more about our organization and the men and women we serve.”
During the meeting HVAF staff discussed the history of HVAF, our clients and current programs, and some of the challenges that may be in our future.
Indiana State House Representative, Karlee D. Macer, added, “It’s great to have everyone working together to empower our veterans and community.”
A tour of HVAF’s veteran recovery program known as REST was led by Social Worker Curtis Williamson.
