Hearts & Hands of Indiana is a local nonprofit that helps families and individuals attain affordable, long-term homeownership in the Near West neighborhood of Indianapolis by providing education, mentoring, and quality rehabilitated homes. Since 2009, we’ve rehabbed five previously abandoned houses and sold them to five low-income families who now call themselves homeowners. Not only does this rehabilitation program benefit the families, but it also helps revitalize the Hawthorne and Haughville neighborhoods.
For the past two years, Sun King Brewing Company has generously donated silent auction items for our Houses to Homes Annual Event, and we’re looking forward to featuring donated Sun King craft beers at our event this year!
All of the money raised at Houses to Homes directly funds our home rehabilitation projects in the Near West community. This year’s event will be Saturday, August 1, at Primo Banquet & Conference Center in Indianapolis. Tickets are $100 and include entry for two, a buffet dinner with complimentary beer, wine, and soft drinks, and a chance at the $5,000 grand prize drawing. The event also features door prizes, a silent auction, a wine pull, and plenty of audience games. To purchase tickets, please visit http://www.heartsandhandsindy.org/2015-houses-to-homes.html or contact Vickie Bogner at firstname.lastname@example.org or 317-353-3606.
If you can’t make it to the event but are interested in becoming involved with Hearts & Hands, please visit our website at www.heartsandhandsindy.org/connect!
We’re only able to carry out our mission thanks to the dedicated efforts of our volunteers. While we do have a need for basic volunteer efforts when rehabbing our houses, we also have many skilled volunteer opportunities for those who have specific skills that relate to our mission. We look forward to hearing from you!
With the help of you and generous organizations like Sun King Brewing Company, we are turning Near West houses into homeownership opportunities, one abandoned property at a time. Check out the houses we’ve rehabbed so far, and see what we’re currently working on.
