Mission Statement

Westminster Neighborhood Services, Inc. is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization on the Near Eastside of Indianapolis that works with the neighborhood, individuals, businesses, service and professional groups, religious organizations and community partners to serve local families by:

  • Providing children’s programs that meet nurturing, safety, educational and developmental needs,
  • Providing food and clothing to meet the basic needs of neighborhood families, and
  • Providing supportive services.

Description

For more than 30 years, Westminster Neighborhood Services, Inc. (WNS) has provided basic resources and education opportunities for at-risk children and families on the Near Eastside of Indianapolis. While nationally 19.1% of people report income at or below the poverty level, here in Westminister’s neighborhood, that number is a staggering 43%.

Beginning as an ecumenical program offering summer activities for children, WNS grew and today includes afterschool, intercession, and summer programming for children and youth, a preschool, a food pantry, a soup kitchen a clothing closet, a partnership with Genessaret Free Clinic, and a Christmas Basket distribution program.

Today, Westminster is an inner city neighborhood with exponential needs, where families struggle with poverty, stress, illiteracy, joblessness and substance abuse. WNS’s programs are built on a strong foundation of volunteering and support by individuals, congregations, foundations, businesses, and civic and professional organizations.

Westminster is dedicated to help those in need with a focus on a hand-up rather than a hand out. We provide services that support families as a whole, focusing on the needs of all family members as a unit. When families are supported and self-sustaining they are able to turn outwards and transform their own community.
