Street Reach Indy
A Joint Initiative between CHIP and Downtown Indy, Inc.
Street Reach Indy is a program operated by CHIP with support from Downtown Indy, Inc. to assist individuals and families in leaving homelessness and finding permanent housing. The goal is simple: to reduce homelessness in Indianapolis by helping individuals experiencing homelessness find housing solutions.
Street Reach Indy directly assists individuals living on the streets of Indianapolis by providing flexible resources to help them overcome barriers to housing. Street Reach Indy is a community fund that homeless service providers can access on behalf of their clients. Using Street Reach Indy funds, providers are able to help homeless individuals and families reach stability and self-sufficiency, moving them off the streets and into a home of their own. Without Street Reach Indy, no source of flexible funding would exist to address the unique situations and barriers faced by those experiencing homelessness locally. Street Reach Indy is able to quickly assist individuals.

How You Make an Impact.
Your donation directly benefits the work of the homeless service providers. Homeless service providers offer first-response services to Indianapolis’ homeless, providing basic food and supplies to the homeless. The goal is to develop a relationship with each person and to connect him or her with the necessary resource and ultimately into permanent housing. Street Reach Indy funds are able to serve as “barrier buster” funds, helping tear down obstacles and allowing an individual to move into a place of their own.
In 2016, over $50,000 was raised. Using these funds, 61 individuals either moved into permanent housing or made significant steps in doing so. With more funds, providers can help more individuals (and families) reach the necessary services needed to return them to a path of self-sufficiency.
