Help yourself, Help Veterans

Veteran Photography Project

Are you a Veteran that needs photos done of your family, or a military member that needs an official DOD photo?  We have photographers that will donate their time for helping you make those memories lasting memories.  There are stipulations such as: we do not shoot weddings, but we can recreate a scene from a wedding, and we do not shoot boudoir photos.  We provide our photo-shoots to you at no cost, but unfortunately if you want prints you will have to purchase the prints from us or receive a digital copy with a photographers release!

We want Veterans to always be able to have photos to remember why they fought for what they fought for!  These photos should be used as a reminder of why they have a reason to live!

Resume Classes

Our Veterans need jobs; the best way to gain employment is beating the streets and handing out resumes.  Many people know about resumes but do not know the reasons for resumes or how to do it appropriately.  Let’s face it the United States Military does not exactly do the best in equipping our Veterans on how to be the most self-sufficient when they get out of the service; nor do they know how to translate their military experiences to a civilian job.  We will teach our Veterans how to create a resume that will be moved to the top of the stack of any job they apply to.

Career Placement

We have made some connections here in our community that may be able to benefit you as a career seeker. would like to be able to get you in touch with our employers to get you started in a new career today!  We have many different veteran friendly employers that can possibly help you get you started in a new career!

Project: Veteran Relief

Project: Veteran Relief will teach a multi-discipline martial arts class featuring advancement in ranks through Hapkido.  This is a free program to Veterans with no out of pocket fees to Veterans that participate in these classes.  This program is set up to help Veterans that struggle with PTSD, TBI, or one of many other disabilities that are related to military service. The intended military population must be able to show proof of military service such as: DD214, Veterans Administration ID, or a Military ID.  Spouses, friends and loved ones may participate in the classes as well for a nominal monthly fee; that will go to supporting the program for Veterans.

A Warriors Reintegration

A Warriors Reintegration

A Warriors Reintegration is a photography project that is trying to bring awareness of the reintegration issues Veterans have when trying to get back into civilian life. Many Veterans face issues that most people only have nightmares about: addiction, joblessness, homelessness, mental health, and suicide is plaguing our Veterans, who at one time in their life, wrote a blank check to preserve the American way of life.

Scrappers's Rescue

We are here as a 501(c)(3), helping out our Veterans and Pets of Veteran’s. Everything we do about charitable giving! We want to help everyone that needs help; especially our Veterans. We have a thrift store in Elkhart, Indiana on Cassopolis Street, where we sell items that were donated to us, in order to complete our mission. Please look through this site to learn more about us, our mission, and how we get things across! Thank you for coming by our site, and we hope to see you in our storefront as soon as possible!

Operation: Job Ready Veterans

OJRV serves any veteran, including veterans with disabilities, transitioning active duty Service Members and National Guard and Reservists. Our staff of experienced workforce development professionals, many of whom are veterans, has developed an effective approach to assisting veterans who are seeking employment and career opportunities in the civilian workforce. They take a hands-on approach with our clients, from individual coaching sessions to the small group workshops and training sessions. For job seekers who complete V.E.T.S. and are JobReady™, they provide support and assistance to remove barriers to employment.

Pets Healing Vets

Pets Healing Vets pairs qualifying veterans returning from active duty with symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) with shelter animals in need of homes.  This program offered by the Humane Society for Hamilton County serves veterans throughout the state of Indiana.

Catch a Lift Fund

Founded in memory of Army Cpl. Chris Coffland, Catch A Lift Fund (CAL) enables post 9/11 combat wounded Veterans to regain and maintain their physical and mental health by providing granted gym memberships, fitness programs or in-home gym equipment, anywhere in the United States.  In addition, CAL’s M.A.P.S. Program ensures success by tracking progress and offers motivation, accountability and peer support through small squads of Veterans who heal together Vet to Vet. CAL Veterans are not only losing weight and moving away from obesity, but also eliminating the need for multiple prescription medications and finding their “new self”. CAL Veterans are thriving, reintegrating, healing and saving each other’s lives through newly established comradery; filling the void left after military service.
