2019 Celebration

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.The Celebration is an opportunity to recognize the people and projects that have made an impact on ending homelessness over the past year. As part of this year’s Celebration, we are also pleased to host a facilitated conversation with Indianapolis mayoral candidates Mayor Joe Hogsett and Senator Jim Merritt. It will no doubt prove to be an inspiring and enlightening dialogue as the candidates share their vision and strategic priorities to address homelessness in Indianapolis.

2019 Point-in-Time Count Report

The Point-in-Time (PIT) Count is a count of sheltered and unsheltered homeless persons on a single night in January. The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires each Continuum of Care to conduct a census of homeless persons who are sheltered in emergency shelter, transitional housing, and safe havens on a single night. The data and findings from recent PIT Counts explore the issue of homelessness in Marion County and inform policy makers and service providers.

We create collaborative housing solutions to drive community change.

CHIP - Coalition for Homelessness Intervention & Prevention is the only organization in Indianapolis driving a system-wide, community response to make homelessness rare, short-lived, and recoverable.

Through leadership and collaboration, CHIP:

  • Secures funding for housing and services

  • Manages and analyzes data collected by homeless providers

  • Advocates for policy change at the local and national levels

  • Supports community partners as we work together to end homelessness

CHIP board and staff members believe that successful efforts toward ending homelessness require the collective talents, resources, and commitment of the entire Indianapolis community. No one group or individual has the ability to address these issues alone. We need your help to create collaborative housing solutions to drive community change in Indianapolis.
