Local Strategic Partners

Shepherd Community Center

Shepherd Community Center works with neighborhood youth and their families “to break the cycle of poverty on the near Eastside of Indianapolis by engaging and empowering the community to cultivate healthy children, strong families, and vibrant neighborhoods through a Christ-centered approach that meets the spiritual, physical, emotional, and academic needs of our neighbors.”

Ascent 121

Ascent 121 is a faith-based, non-profit agency in Indiana that addresses domestic human trafficking through clinical services, awareness and outreach. We strive to bring survivors to a place of hope, healing and safety. Through partnerships with local law enforcement, other agencies and the faith community, we offer a continuum of care that provides for the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of teen survivors.

 

Safe Families 

Safe Families hosts vulnerable children. We create extended-family–like supports for desperate families through a community of devoted volunteers who are motivated by faith to keep children safe and to reunite families.

To learn more about families serving in this way at E91 contact Tammie Thomas.

Life Centers

Committed staff and volunteers at our eight pregnancy centers provide free, confidential services including pregnancy tests, ultrasound exams, one-on-one counseling, and post-abortive support.  We also meet the material needs of expectant mothers by providing maternity and baby clothing, diapers, bottles and other baby items.

At the heart of our life-saving mission is a passion to show the love of Jesus.  We believe that the hope found in Jesus Christ is the greatest hope for those facing pregnancy decisions.

Young Life Lawrence

Young Life doesn’t start with a program. It starts with adults concerned enough about kids to go to them, on their turf and in their culture, building bridges of authentic friendship. These relationships don’t happen overnight — they take time, patience, trust, and consistency.

Jesus House

Jesus House, an aftercare ministry of Jesus Inside Prison Ministry and the Indianapolis Pastor's Gathering, is truly a place of restoration and preparation for ex-offenders who have turned to Christ and are being released from incarceration. 

Indy Internationals (Brad & Kristy Nelson)
