Supporting the Brave

At Volunteers of America Ohio & Indiana, we have infinite amounts of respect for the men and women who have stood at the forefront of our armed forces. We believe it is important to stand together with veterans who have sacrificed so much. When these brave soldiers return to everyday life, they and their families often need help integrating back into society. By encouraging car donations for veterans, offering housing assistance, and providing job search programs, service members have a place to call home and the tools to take care of their families.

Helping Those in Need

Through thrift stores and donation centers, we connect your generosity with the people who need it. This can make a huge difference in the well-being and outlook of families and individuals who are victims of unexpected natural disasters and other crises. Providing essentials to a thrift store―food essentials, clothing, kitchen appliances, and furniture items―help those going through tough situations face adversity without giving up. These donations assist:

  • Single moms and dads working hard to care for their children
  • Homeless individuals
  • Veterans

Caring for All

At Volunteers of America Ohio & Indiana, we know that truly supporting others often means going beyond basic needs of clothing and shelter. That is why we provide programs that take care of mental health and emotional needs as well. When individuals who have experienced intense emotional trauma require a sympathetic ear to cope with post-traumatic stress disorder, we are ready to assist. We also provide disability assistance and mental health programs that improve the quality of life of sufferers and caregivers alike.

Offering Health Services

By coordinating with local health providers, substance abuse clinics, and behavioral health centers, we make sure that every individual in the community has access to safe treatment when it’s required. Saving lives is important to our mission statement, whether in a literal sense or by giving people something to live for again.

Providing a Hand Up – Not a Handout

We always look for opportunities to support people who have a good heart, even if they made bad choices in the past. Ongoing support can make a significant difference when someone is struggling with substance addiction. By giving a second chance to people who were formerly incarcerated but are trying to make changes, these mothers, fathers, brothers, and sisters can make their families stronger.

  • Work-release programs
  • Correctional re-entry services

Defending Human Dignity

At Volunteers of America Ohio & Indiana, we believe it is important to care for individuals that society tends to overlook. Our goal is to end homelessness through programs that help people secure affordable housing and support themselves. 

Your generous donations and wishes make a real difference. Whether you choose to make a car donation, donate, or volunteer, your actions have the power to bring a smile to the faces of those who have lost hope.
