Helping Those Who Served By Those That Ride
Bikers Helping Veterans is an outgrowth of BikersInc Incorporated, an Indiana based organization that is federally recognized as a 501(c)3 Non-Profit.
As called upon by several of our volunteers, we were assisting more and more local Veterans thus Bikers Helping Veterans was created. Making the transition from Military life to Civilian life can be a challenging one, Bikers Helping Veterans helps bridge the gap between the Battlefield and the Home front by assisting returning Veterans.
Bikers Helping Veterans also works with other Veterans programs and organizations in order to provide a tighter network of complementary services. We assists with locating housing, small business advice, mentoring along with supporting other local veteran groups & more. We are in the process of securing abandoned house in several areas where some will be used to assist returning Veterans. We currently have two programs in place.
1. Veteran Housing Initiative
Our low cost housing program will be available to veterans who have been verified by staff of our organization. BikersInc will provide veterans with opportunities to own a house through a very low and affordable payment option where at the end of a low amount of years the house is completely theirs. Tied in with this program is support such as information to other community support organizations that offer grants or matching grants for new veteran homeowners the ability to improve the homes they’ve been granted by BikersInc.
2. Veteran Entrepreneurship and Job Initiative
Bikers Helping Veterans also covers areas of entrepreneurship and job skills. We offer assistance through job searches, job hunts, business advice for start-ups, and entrepreneurial opportunities such as affordable, low cost lease for commercial space in order to get a start for fledgling veteran owned businesses and foster business growth in the area.
Our interest is more focused on motorcycle related businesses and their affiliated areas. We will happily help Veterans whose interest lie in other ventures to networked organizations so that they too have the proper tools and information to pursue their business dreams.
