About Us



    Outreach is a faith-based nonprofit organization in Indianapolis, Indiana, that reaches out to homeless young men and women (14-24) with the compassion of Jesus Christ. Our goal is to equip and empower these at-risk young people to achieve stability and life transformation.

    Here’s how we work:

    Homeless youth come to Outreach when they have hit rock bottom. Abandoned, abused, and forgotten, they live on friends’ couches, in shelters, hotel rooms, abandoned buildings, even the street. Many hope they can just make it to tomorrow, much less dream about graduating from high school or going to college. They are isolated, alone, and at a crossroads.

    But something happens when they meet someone from Outreach . . . they discover hope.

    At Outreach, a youth may experience for the first time, someone willing to walk along side of them through a tough situation. Out staff connects them to vital resources, while continuing to focus on building relationships and trust. The youth begin to share stories about their struggles and allow our staff to speak truth and love into their lives.

    And when someone knows that they are loved, other things begin to happen.

    They start loving others back. They start paying attention to their neighborhood and the world around them. They start longing for a better way of life. They start thinking about their future. They start studying and working hard. They start planning for success.
