Support the renovation of our HQ:

Groundwork Indy has partnered with the City of Indianapolis to rehabilitate a historically significant firehouse that has stood vacant for 13 years. Groundwork Indy hopes to not only give new life to a
pillar of the community, but to find a permanent home for the organization.
