Great News to Share

A few weeks ago, Outreach celebrated its 20th Birthday with an event at Prime 47 downtown. We are sorry if you weren’t able to join us. Knowing you helped build Outreach over the last 20 years is a tremendous joy. Outreach has not been built upon the talents of a few but the by the investment of many. Thank you for your generous support! Moreover, since not everyone could attend our celebration we wanted to share the special announcement that Outreach will be building a new facility. We will be staying on the eastside of Indianapolis, moving 4 blocks closer to downtown. The new facility will provide more space for relationships to be cultivated, services offered, counseling to occur and a homeless young person to take a shower, do their laundry and connect with a caring team member.

The even bigger announcement we shared at 20th Birthday Celebration is that Outreach received a $1.275 million grant from Lilly Endowment Inc.! This investment will allow Outreach to break ground this July! The grant will go to support the building campaign, operational support and program evaluation. Here are the architect designs that were unveiled at the party:
