CHIP hosts several signature events each year to raise awareness about homelessness in our community. Join us at our next event as we impact homelessness in our community.


Join CHIP in celebrating! This event is our annual fundraiser reception and awards presentation. This includes our community's Diamond Service Award, which is presented to an individual with lived experience of homelessness and is giving back to the community in meaningful ways.

Homeless Persons'
Memorial Service

December 20, 2019

Join the Indianapolis community in commemorating the lives of the individuals who have experienced homelessness and have passed away during the year. The service includes a candlelight ceremony, which consists of reading the names and lighting a candle for each person who has passed.


CHIP leads the community in conducting a Point-in-Time (PIT) Count, during which volunteers search all over Indianapolis to interview and offer assistance to individuals experiencing unsheltered and sheltered homelessness. The information gathered during this event is vital to figuring out where resources should be focused, helping evaluate current programs, and forming new initiatives.
