The Good News Ministries currently maintains several shelters and programs in my neighborhood. As homeowners in the Indianapolis’ near east side community, we are pleased to have such a well-run nonprofit organization less than one mile from our home.
The Good News Ministries has been offered property in another neighborhood, called Irvington (just five minutes further east in Indianapolis). Some of the Irvington residents are not welcoming of the plans for a shelter in their backyard. The neighborhood council’s sub-committee just formalized their recommendation to stop the plans for a shelter.
I have a shelter in my backyard, and I like that good people are doing great work in our community. I am proud to call The Good News Ministries my neighbors.
Many others in the fine city of Indianapolis agree with me that The Good News Ministries should be encouraged and welcomed to expand their property and their programs into the Irvington neighborhood. Letters of support include: Mayor Gregory A. Ballard, the Coalition for Homelessness Intervention and Prevention, local business owners, local churches, and local residents!
