With the help of our partners, more at-risk youth are being reached than ever before! Become a partner and use your resources to help transform our community. Our community works best when we work together.
· Business/Organization: Is your organization looking for more ways to contribute to our Indy community? Corporate sponsorships and grants greatly help to sustain our mentoring programs. We would be honored to meet with you.
· Church: Urban Hope is a non-profit, Christian organization serving the most impoverished parts of our city. We believe the Bible is the Word of God. We serve as part of the church, not apart from it. We consider ourselves missionaries, sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the cold, forgotten places of our community. What the world calls mentorship, we call discipleship. We exist to make disciples. Are you a church that believes in serving the poor and spreading the Good News? If so, we would love to partner with you.
Urban Hope Indy partners with NEST! The “Near East Side Troopers” Youth Center was founded in the early 1980’s by Janet Hair of JL Hair Realty. A Real Estate Broker for over 50 years, Janet has owned and operated JL Hair Realty since 1969. She founded the youth in the early 1980’s. Her son Jeff says, “Mom did it for two reasons: To show children the unconditional love of God, and because she just can’t stand to see kids go hungry.” Hundreds of youth have passed through the center over the years as it continues to feed children every week. The center offers recreational sports, games and activities to provide neighborhood children an alternative to the adverse influences of the streets. Urban Hope formed a partnership with the center in 2015 and hosts youth meetings there on a weekly basis. The NEST Youth Center, located at 4306 E. New York Street, Indianapolis, is open Monday through Friday, 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
