Every dollar invested in CHIP’s work has a six-dollar net effect on the community. It’s possible because we can use our resources to obtain additional funding, including applying to HUD for $5+ million annually. Our dedication to securing resources amplifies what’s possible for our partner organizations and our community. Together, we can end homelessness in Indianapolis.
