Homelessness

Interfaith Hospitality Network

The Indianapolis Interfaith Hospitality Network provides temporary shelter, meals, and supportive services to single parents and married couples with children. Indianapolis Hebrew Congregation is among the more than thirty hosting congregations that open their doors to support families in crisis. 

Several times a year, IHC hosts families who find themselves temporarily homeless. Volunteers are responsible for the coordination of van drivers, assembling temporary bedrooms, laundry, food preparation, housekeeping, recreational activities, and overnight hosting. In addition, volunteers provide invaluable fellowship and encouragement to families. 

To find out about the next volunteer opportunity, please contact Lori Anderson, Mitch Katz, or check SignUp Genius and volunteer! 

Dinners at Dayspring Center

The Dayspring Center was founded in 1986 to provide emergency shelter, clothing and three meals a day for homeless families with children in Central Indiana. Volunteers from IHC provide and serve monthly Sunday dinners for Dayspring residents. On the first Sunday of each month, bring a dish and help serve a nice Sunday dinner for the guests at this family homeless shelter. 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. To find out more about Dinners at the Dayspring Center, please contact Amy Isaacs.

Habitat for Humanity 

Through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, Habitat for Humanity builds and rehabilitates simple, decent houses alongside our homeowner partner families. Help us raise the money for a congregation-wide build then grab your hammer, saw and pliers and start building.
