The Military Family Research Institute at Purdue University (MFRI), in partnership with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Center for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships (CFBNP), Indiana Department of Veterans Affairs, Indiana National Guard, Indiana State Bar Association, and Roudebush VA Medical Center, are pleased to present the 14th annual Battlemind to Home Summit.  

This year’s conference will be on October 27, with preconference sessions on October 26. The Battlemind to Home Summit brings together a variety of experts each year to inform and educate Indiana professionals on the critical issues facing military-connected families in Indiana’s communities. Our goal for this conference is to help reduce reintegration barriers for veterans, service members and their families. We work to educate attendees on the challenges military-connected families face, and the opportunities and strengths they bring to our communities.  


The summit will be held on October 27, with preconference sessions on October 26. All events will take place at Embassy Suites by Hilton Noblesville Indianapolis Conference Center. The hotel is located off I-69 north of Indianapolis, near Hamilton Town Center, IKEA and Topgolf. Noblesville is situated in Hamilton County, which offers a diverse array of shopping centers, restaurants and other attractions
