Veteran Workforce Development
HVAF's Veteran Workforce Development Program offers various opportunities for veterans who are seeking assistance with career training and placement. A dedicated team of Employment Specialists assist veterans with learning how to overcome obstacles that impede them from becoming self-sufficient and obtaining permanent employment.
The Employment Services program offers a collaborative approach to career counseling. With our team of dedicated Employment Specialists, veterans will receive one-on-one assistance in the areas of resume creation, interview prep, financial planning, credit workshops, and much more.
Army National Guard veteran JayMarlon found himself starting his life over after getting out of prison at the beginning of 2020. Thanks to our Employment & Rapid Rehousing Teams, JayMarlon was employed and housed within just a few months:
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 will complete on-the-job training, have access to education/certifications and receive assistance with obtaining a good and promising job. Throughout this process they will have opportunities to receive incentives (stipends) to assist them along the way.
This program is made possible by a grant from Lilly Endowment Inc. through its initiative, Enhancing Opportunity in Indianapolis.
Bob Woodruff Foundation
The BWF has awarded the Veteran Workforce Development Team an NFL-BWF Healthy Lifestyles and Creating Community grant. This funding will assist post 9/11 veterans with training and education by supporting them to become more marketable to employers. The funding can also help those veterans whose new employment require them to purchase work tools and supplies.

HVAF's Employment Specialists were extremely helpful for me, and VERY patient with me. I think because of them, it really changed the trajectory of my life. I don’t want to get teary eyed!
