HBI.org Building Careers for Veterans

SERVICES

   We provide financial assistance for a variety of needs determined through assessment interviews.  Needs that we address include but are not limited to:  shelter for homeless vets, rent, utility payments for terminated or near-termination accounts, auto repair, clothing, insurances, relocation, glasses, and lay counseling.      We maintain an “Outreach Program” for individuals who can not meet mainstream society work demands due to mental, emotional, or physical problems.  This program serves a tri-fold purpose.  It enables a veteran to earn much needed wages while going through personal issues that prohibit a mainstream position.  This program brings awareness to the public of our charitable mission and services, and it is a source of fundraising.

    We work with other organizations and agencies that provide aid to veterans in need in order to reach the most beneficial arrangement for each veteran.  We make and receive referrals from several VA offices, Catholic Charities, Salvation Army, Goodwill, Rescue Missions, and other local agencies.  Here is an illustration of how we network.  The VA Clinic might refer a homeless veteran to us for temporary shelter while they prepare a slot at a rehabilitation center or hospital. 

    We have been involved with the National WWII Memorial in Arlington, Virginia since it was only an idea.  Through our Outreach Program, we register WWII veterans, living or deceased for the Registry of Remembrances.  It is a computer database listing those who served and a short overview of their time, as well as a photo if submitted.
