Homeless Veterans Services (Brandon Hall):
Located in Indianapolis, twenty (20) beds are available for honorably discharged, homeless men and women veterans who are referred to us by the VA Homeless Team. The agency provides case management and transitional housing services for these veterans. 

Transitional Veterans Program (Brandon Hall):  Located in Indianapolis, an eleven (29) bed dorm is established for male homeless veterans who are receiving treatment for mental health and/or substance abuse issues at the local VA Hospital.  Services include housing, case management, monitoring, and structured activities for these veterans.

Liberty Landing:  Located in Fort Wayne, forty (40) beds are available for honorably discharged, homeless men and women veterans who are referred to us by the VA Homeless Team.  The agency provides case management and transitional housing services for these veterans.

The Richard Lugar Safe Haven for Veterans:  Located in Fort Wayne. the 25-bed Safe Haven is a specialized version of the Healthcare for Homeless Veterans (HCHV) Contractual Residential Program, funded by the Veterans Administration.  The program places no treatment participation demands on residents, but expects the residents to transition from unsafe and unstable street life to permanent housing, and re-engage with treatment services.  The primary focus on the veteran's care in a Safe Haven program is "Housing First", focusing primarily on safe and stable housing.    To enter a Safe Haven, the veteran does not need to make an initial commitment to sobriety/substance free living, but is expected to work with their case manager toward a lifestyle conducive to stable housing.  Veterans may stay in a Safe Haven for up to six (6) months and are referred from the Veterans Administration. 

Lincoln Apartments: Located in Indianapolis, Lincoln Apartments provides 75 newly constructed units of permanent supportive housing for homeless veterans in a modern and spacious mix of studio and one-bedroom floorplans. Support services are coordinated by Volunteers of America in conjunction with the Department of Veterans Affairs.
