    Ramp Building

    Handicapped individuals confined to a wheelchair are truly captives in the walls of their homes when no ramp is available.

    Servants at Work (SAWs) is a group of ecumenical volunteers that work together to build wheelchair ramps for the elderly, disabled, and infirmed that cannot afford to have the ramp built. These individuals are identified through social agencies as unable to financially provide a ramp.

    Habitat For Humanity

    Second is a steadfast supporter of the Greater Indy Habitat for Humanity (link: http://indyhabitat.org/). Our church has built or refurbished at least one home each year and over the past 20 years has donated more than $2 million to Habitat. Second continues to sponsor the annual interfaith build for Habitat.

    If you would like to volunteer with Habitat around the city of Indianapolis, sign up on their volunteer hub today.

    Refugee Ministry

    In early 2018, we welcomed a Congolese family of 12 in Indianapolis. They had been in a refugee camp in Tanzania for almost two decades.

    If you would like to learn more about how you can help this family and others, contact Jim Montgomery or Jennifer Shivers, who lead this team of faithful people, who feel called to work with refugees in our city.

    Community Garden

    Utility and Rent Assistance

    The Utility and Rent Assistance Program (URAP) partners with the Fay Bicard Glick Community Center and the Washington Township Trustee Office to offer emergency financial intervention. In these “gap” situations, a little assistance goes a long way, often preventing a family from losing their housing or having their power shut off. Our partners provide vital case management with URAP families to ensure long term stability.
