Power and Promise

Assisting Indianapolis communities in establishing generational wellness by enrolling family units into services. Families work with Life Coaches to design and set development goals for themselves. Youth and families will be paid incentive stipends for completion of goals, participation in training/programs, obtaining advanced skills, or enrollment in post-secondary education. This approach allows for internal family motivation to be developed and removes barriers for communities to achieve success.
Intensive intervention services to youth and families currently in crisis. Mobile resources, targeted community engagement, group mentoring, transferrable skills coaching, access to barrier buster funding, alternative education, and employment services are part of this program. Referrals can be accepted directly from the community and from local law enforcement agencies.
