Offer Hope Restore Dignity Transform Lives


Volunteers of America of Indiana strives to end veteran homelessness, provide behavioral health services to individuals struggling with mental illness and/or addiction, treat women and children affected by the opioid epidemic, provide affordable housing for seniors, and support incarcerated men and women. Your gift will directly support the men, women and children we serve every day.

Through your donation, you will help mothers find a place to go to recover from addiction. You will lift a homeless veteran out of the street and into his/her own apartment. You will support a father coming out of prison, hoping for a fresh start with his community and family. When you support the work of Volunteers of America, you make a difference in your community - one person at a time.

Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP) Tax Credits

The purpose of the Indiana NAP tax credit program is to encourage businesses, trusts and individuals to make donations to benefit our work serving low-income persons.

Entities filing State of Indiana income tax returns for 2016 that make contributions greater than $100 prior to June 30, 2016 may receive tax credits equal to 50 percent of the donation. This credit is applied against your Indiana state income tax liability. For example, if you donate $500 you will receive a $250 tax credit on your 2016 Indiana Tax Return. The credits are available on a "first-come, first-served" basis. When VOAIN's allotment of credits is exhausted, the program will end, unless the State re-authorizes the program.

You must complete the NC-10 form with your acknowledgement form and return it to VOAIN to document your intent to claim the tax credit.

NAP donations allow VOAIN to provide counseling services for individuals in Indianapolis. These persons include veterans transitioning out of homelessness, men and women returning to the community after a period of incarceration, children with an incarcerated or previously incarcerated parent, adults who need mental health counseling, and adults seeking substance abuse treatment. Thank you for supporting the mental and emotional well-being of this population.

Contact Sara Pugh at 317-660-2084 or for more information.
