About Street Reach Indy

Homelessness in Indianapolis touches all types of people – men, women, veterans, families, and children. Many suffer from mental and physical health challenges, job loss, or domestic violence, but all of them need support. Your donation quickly and easily reaches those who are in need, homeless, and on the streets of Indianapolis.

Street Reach Indy provides critical financial support to help Indianapolis’ homeless.  The campaign is operated by the Coalition for Homelessness Intervention & Prevention (CHIP) with support from Downtown Indy, Inc. This flexible fund directly impacts the lives of those experiencing homelessness and is supported through donations and sponsorships from Indianapolis businesses, organizations, and community members.

The goal is simple: to improve the lives of our city’s homeless in the most meaningful ways possible.


Working together, we can make a big impact in the lives of people experiencing homelessness in Indianapolis.

Your business can help sustain the Street Reach Indy campaign when it sponsors a Street Reach Meter or Street Reach Cashbox, which are located in high-traffic areas in downtown Indianapolis.


Your donation directly benefits homeless individuals and Homeless Service Providers. Homeless service providers offer first-response services to Indianapolis’ homeless. They are organizations including local law enforcement, nonprofits, health providers, and mental health entities. Homeless service providers work on the frontline providing basic food and supplies to the homeless, with the goal of developing a relationship with each person and connecting him or her with resources to transition into permanent housing. Street Reach Indy funds are able to serve as a “barrier buster,” helping tear down obstacles and allowing an individual to move into a place of their own.

To our partners and supporters, thank you for helping end homelessness in our community. However, we still have a long way to go.
