Find Out About Our Beginnings

With roots in the United Methodist Church, in 1872 Fletcher Place Community Center was started as a small outreach in the South side of downtown Indianapolis. Since then our dedication has been to ease the pain and struggle of poverty and hunger for families, the homeless, and youth.

58 years later our preschool program began so we could begin helping young children get an education when financial limits may have stopped them in other circumstances.

Taking What We Have to Accomplish so Much

With an operating budget around $300,000, we're capable of doing a lot with a little. 8 full-time employees and 4 part-time employees along with thousands of volunteers handle all of our outreach programs, including 25,000 hot meals and 42,000 meals worth of groceries. 30 children were a part of our early childhood education programs and 75 youth participated in Art in the City.
