Community Resources


The City of Indianapolis has launched a new tool on their website that connects those impacted by COVID-19 pandemic with community resources.  Resources will be posted in real-time and organized by topic, gathering in one place programming made available by government agencies, service providers, community partners, and school districts, including support for those who need assistance with food, utilities, childcare, and at home entertainment.
