NWI Veterans' Action Council Collects Job, Health, and Housing Resources for Local Vets

Northwest Indiana’s veteran community is huge, and it boasts a strong support network to help our country’s former servicemen and women get the help and resources they need. However, it is a challenge for many veterans to find their options. The Northwest Indiana Veterans’ Action Council, a group dedicated to spreading awareness about local initiatives for vets, is making things easier by collecting all the information and resources a veteran could need online at

Here are some summaries of just a few categories of assistance NWI Veterans’ Action Council can direct you to.

At, you can find tools and other websites that will direct you to businesses across the Region that offer discounts for veterans as a thanks for their service.

Healthcare is one of the most complicated subjects around, but makes it simple by compiling a vast array of resources on health and wellness focused on vets. From mental wellness and PTSD support, to Wounded Warrior and pet therapy programs, the organization has collected everything a veteran in the Region needs to stay healthy and happy.

Unfortunately, it is common for veterans to find themselves without a roof over their head.

The NWI Veterans’ Action Council is always looking for local employers committed to hiring veterans. At, you can find job openings, training opportunities, and career counseling options such as Hire Heroes USA, Helmets to Hard Hats, and more.
