Southern Indiana Services
Veteran Judy Colloway was able to move into her own apartment after receiving services from our Supportive Services for Veteran Families Program.
Volunteers of America's Supportive Services for Veteran Families Program (SSVF) promotes housing stability among low-income veteran families who reside in or are transitioning to permanent housing. Volunteers of America provides comprehensive case management services that include helping veterans access benefits and maintain affordable housing. Volunteers of America case managers work to connect veterans with services that include vocational and rehabilitation counseling; employment and training services; educational assistance; health care services; and daily living services.
The Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program (HVRP) in Southern Indiana provides outreach, needs assessment, case management, employment counseling, job training/job skills enhancement, job placement and transportation to homeless veterans or veterans at risk of being homeless.
Developmental Disability Services
For more than 20 years, Volunteers of America has worked to provide "the good life" for persons we serve with developmental disabilities in Floyds Knobs, Jeffersonville and New Albany. Volunteers of America not only provides residential homes with around the clock care for those we serve in the developmental disability programs, we also work with community supporters to provide a network of support, relationships and opportunities for persons with developmental disabilities to explore their interests and even pursue employment to live a full, enjoyable life.
The newest service Volunteers of America is providing in this region is HIV prevention and testing services. These services are being offered in a direct response to the nation's growing heroin epidemic that is increasing the spread of HIV and Hepatitis C. By offering free, anonymous testing and information, Volunteers of America outreach workers can connect people to community resources and provide information on how to prevent contracting and spreading HIV.
