Mission Statement

Westminster Neighborhood Services provides education support, access to basic needs, and community connections to empower neighbors and strengthen youth and families on the Near Eastside of Indianapolis.

Description

In 1982, three Near Eastside neighborhood churches, including Westminster Presbyterian Church, began serving youth during a summer program in order to combat poor student achievement while providing a safe environment during summer months while students are out of school.

Recognizing that the neighborhood’s needs extended beyond the children and into to the families, Westminster began offering a soup kitchen and food pantry one day a week. In 2014, Westminster opened doors to its new Family & Adults Services Center which allowed expansion of services and programs.

‚ÄčToday, Westminster partners with more than 20 community organizations to assist with program services. The power of partnerships allows Westminster to meet the needs of the neighbors and help equip them to break down barriers that are keeping them in their current situations.
