Our Diversion program launched in a test phase on May 1, 2020, and helped its first family secure permanent housing on May 8, 2020.

It was seeded by a $50,000 grant from Family Promise (National), choosing Greater Indianapolis as one of 10 affiliates to pilot the program.

Diversion is helping families at the shelter door find other accomodations until permanent housing can be secured quickly.  It provides mediation services with family/friends, advocacy with landlords, and financial assistance to secure permanent housing.  It helps families with children avoid the trauma of a shelter stay, while saving shelter capacity for those most in need.  This program can have a big impact considering Indianapolis family shelters still receive more than ten calls per day for shelter.

We will overhaul this brief webpage as the program's testing phase is complete, and referral information can be made available to the public and other agencies.
