Interfaith Build

This fall we will once again work alongside the faith community of Greater Indianapolis to embody the power of unity in diversity with the hope of further enriching our neighborhoods.

Meet the 2017 Homeowners

This year’s Interfaith Build will take place in the Near North neighborhood alongside the Taylor and Stone families. These families will complete 300+ sweat-equity hours.
