Night Without a Bed | Saturday, May 4

Have you ever had to spend a night without a bed?

Family Promise of Greater Indianapolis shelters families who previously had to sleep in cars, park pavilions, even abandoned houses. You can help Family Promise expand its homeless shelter to allow more children and parents from having to sleep without a bed!

#NightWithoutABed is the primary fundraising campaign to support Family Promise’s Apartment Shelter Program. This will allow Family Promise to sustain 24 apartment shelters in operation in the coming year, making it the largest family shelter in Indianapolis. The cost for one 12-month lease on an apartment, plus security deposit, utilities, Internet, insurance, and some repairs is about $15,000. The shelter program has a housing rate of 77%!
