Thursday night, Oct. 3, 2019 Home Sweet Home

6:00 pm - The Willows on Westfield

Celebrating Milestones: Join us for an evening to remember!

This is Going to be Big: Not only is it the 20th anniversary of our annual Home Sweet Home event, but this year’s fundraiser will be held on the 25th anniversary of taking in the first family into our shelter in Indianapolis! 

About 400 supporters attended last year’s Home Sweet Home, raising $135,000 for families experiencing homelessness! The gathering is our largest fundraiser and crucial to help our neighbors in need. Last year, Family Promise of Greater Indianapolis served 57 families in our community…but it’s not just about emergency shelter…

Our mission is to truly break the cycle of homelessness. Once a family enters our door, everything we do – from the homecooked meals and compassion of thousands of volunteers to budget planning and assistance with rent – is focused on helping ensure that family never returns to homelessness. Last year, no one in our AfterCare program lost their home, and our Family Assistance Fund prevented eight evictions for working families.

We can do this.  We can work to end homelessness, and Home Sweet home is one of the most important opportunities to help!

Here are three ways to join us:

  • Purchase tickets for the October 3 event: When you buy event tickets online, you can pay by credit card to register your account details, making it even easier to bid on items at the gathering through our silent presented by Major Tool & Machine as well as the dessert auctions, which is presented by Strada Education Network.

  • Donate to the silent auction: Our most popular items are gift certificates to restaurants, entertainment, and services as well as memorable pieces and collectibles.  We also accept gift baskets and love creative donations!

  • Sponsor Home Sweet Home: There’s a sponsorship level for everyone, and we’re offering unique advantages to support the event on the 25th anniversary of Family Promise in Indianapolis!  (Click here to download the sponsorship packet.)
