According to Zent, a U.S. Army and Air Force veteran, there was a 6% increase in homelessness among Indiana veterans in 2019. To help those who served and raise awareness of this important issue, the Indiana House of Representatives partnered with the American Legion, Department of Indiana to collect more than 7,000 hygiene and food items for care packages. These packages will be distributed to homeless Hoosier veterans across the state.
