A clean record means a second chanceAugust 8, 2013
A new computer lab will provide area veterans easier access to job searches. GTECH Indiana, in partnership with the Hoosier Lottery, plan to open the first GTECH Indiana Technology Lab at HVAF and will host a special dedication ceremony to celebrate the lab’s official opening on Monday, August 12, 2013, at 2:00 p.m. GTECH Indiana is the integrated services provider to the Hoosier Lottery.
“This computer lab will be one more lifeline for our veterans to utilize together. In many cases it will mean an outlet for continued education, applying for veterans benefits, communications and connecting with friends and relatives,” says HVAF President & CEO Charles Haenlein.
As part of the $15,000 donation, HVAF received eight Dell desktop computers, two Dell SonicWALLs, a RICOH all-in-one printer, and a variety of software, courtesy of Microsoft. The Technology Lab will be made available to HVAF veterans to conduct job searches and apply for positions online, take online college courses, and better their computer skills.
Army veteran James S. says the computer lab is more convenient than waiting in line at the library.
“I graduated from the recovery program last month and have started looking for work in security and this computer lab could not have come at a better time,” says James.
GTECH Indiana and the Hoosier Lottery plan to donate another lab to HVAF’s Moreau property in the fall.
