NeighborLink Indianapolis is a nonprofit serving Marion County providing free home repairs and services to neighbors who are low-income homeowners-seniors or disabled- living at or below 150% of the federal poverty line. Its mission is to help our most vulnerable citizens age in place safely and with dignity. Since it began in late 2013, NeighborLink has provided more than 2,000 home repairs.
Volunteer opportunities are flexible, great for groups, generally in three-hour segments and do not require any skill--just a heart to serve. Minimum volunteer age is 12 years old (with adult supervision), so there are opportunities for families with children 12 or older to participate together. Several groups within Second, including youth and young adults, have already volunteered with NeighborLink.
NeighborLink has a collaborative relationship with SAWs as NeighborLink does not build ramps.
NeighborLink Indianapolis is one of the new local mission partners identified by the Task Force on Local Partnership Ministries in 2020. The task force was established to consider new opportunities for mission work in our local community, Washington Township, and to consider ways to adapt existing mission projects so that they focus more directly on our local community.
