MLK Center strengthens the neighborhoods and communities we serve by providing a variety of programming for youth, families and seniors.  Through a holistic, multi-generational approach, we work to improve our neighborhood one household at a time.

Every family is important to the success of our neighborhoods.  We strive to provide each family with access to the tools they need to thrive.

Stability – We offer assistance and programs for adult basic education, job training, employment opportunities, financial literacy, income support and more.

Unity – Our neighborhoods grow stronger when we work, learn and celebrate together, so all of our events and programs are open to the public.

Resilience – Friendship and kinship are vital to overcoming life’s challenges. These connections offer experience, strength and hope for the mind, body and spirit.

The Neighborhood & Family Advocate project focuses these services on families in the Crown Hill, Meridian Kessler, Mapleton Fall Creek and Butler Tarkington neighborhoods with children attending IPS School #43 James Whitcomb Riley.  Families are connected to support services, resources, empowerment opportunities and each other.
