We want to take the time to acknowledge Nuspace Moving, a locally owned and operated professional moving service. They donated and transported gently used furniture to support our formerly homeless Veterans that reside in our Lucas Place II building.
Most often, those we serve receive their new home with no possessions other than what they can carry after spending countless days and months living on the streets or in emergency shelter. It is through community partnerships and those that care, like the staff at Nuspace Moving, that a house can become their HOME.
Nuspace Moving embodied the vision of ECHO Housing today: providing for a community where everyone has a place to call home.

IDVA selects ECHO Housing Corporation as 2023 Non-Profit Partner
Non-profit serves homeless veterans in southwest Indiana
INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Department of Veterans Affairs (IDVA) announced today the selection of ECHO Housing Corporation to serve as Non-Profit Partner (NPP) in 2023. The program partners IDVA with an Indiana non-profit dedicated to enhancing the lives of Indiana’s Veterans.
ECHO is a non-profit organization based in Evansville, Indiana and serves homeless veterans in nine southwestern Indiana counties through two veteran-centric programs. ECHO provides employment-centric case management services for hundreds of homeless veterans through its Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program (HVRP). ECHO also has six emergency shelter beds for immediate use by veterans served in HVRP. In addition to HVRP, ECHO also operates Lucas Place II, the first permanent supportive housing site in the state of Indiana specifically for veterans. This facility has 27, 1-bedroom apartments for veterans experiencing homelessness. ECHO provides on-site case management for all residents and works tirelessly to increase the quality of life for each Veteran.
Together, IDVA and ECHO will plan the annual IDVA golf outing as well as other events throughout the year to raise funds for ECHO’s mission; raise awareness of state and federal benefits available to veterans; and foster community, camaraderie, and connection.
“We strive every day to end veteran homelessness, and the programs ECHO provides align with our goals to enhance the lives of all Indiana veterans,” said Dennis Wimer, IDVA director. “I look forward to working alongside ECHO over the next year.” ... See MoreSee Less
