GREENFIELD — A poster on a bulletin board at a laundromat changed Jeff Cook’s life.
The 52-year-old Greenfield veteran had just been released from the Hancock County Jail. Held there for two months on a domestic battery charge that was eventually dismissed, Cook couldn’t go back to live with his former girlfriend. He was homeless.
“I just happened to be at the laundromat and wondering what I was going to do that very evening,” Cook said.
The poster was for The Path Home, a nonprofit agency that helps veterans get back on their feet. Through The Path Home and the Hoosier Veterans Assistance Foundation, Cook found the safety net he needed to land his own place and a job.
