Mission of Family Promise of Greater Indianapolis

We are a partnership of congregations and community organizations responding to the crisis of children and their families who are homeless. We work to eliminate homelessness in Greater Indianapolis.

Ways to help families this giving season!

Did you receive our annual appeal, or see a #GivingTuesday announcement on Facebook?  Thanks for considering a monetary donation online here (to the area of greatest need) OR buying an item $5 to $150 on our Amazon Wish List.  Check out our 2015 Annual Report first to see how our model serves twice as many homeless families per dollar invested as static shelters through the power of volunteers!

Home Sweet Home netted over $60,000--shattering the goal!

Thank you to those supporting our biggest annual fundraiser!  On September 29th at The Willows over 250 people enjoyed a wonderful evening of auctions, fun, and desserts with a powerful testimony from Lafaette, a former guest of the IHN program.  See the photos of the action here!


We're Hiring a Day Center Weekend Assistant!

Have weekends free and want to help staff our Day Center every other weekend (and some weekdays) during the year?  Have the maturity to respond to requests while compassionately enforcing policies for a safe and decent homeless shelter?  Then we hope you apply!  Learn more...


Know a congregation that is interested in hosting?

We are recruiting congregations to fill a gap of 17 weeks in 2017.  Know a congregation that might be interested?  Learn more about what is needed here, and how to get in touch with us to schedule a meeting to learn more!
