Glick Housing Foundation creates communities where every person has a place to call home and the opportunity to reach their full potential.

In addition to providing affordable apartment homes, we have invested more than $16 million in onsite services to support resident well-being. Since the launch of the service coordination program in 2010, service coordinators have helped residents access more than $148 million in benefits and resources that they would have otherwise paid out of pocket.

Housing Our Heroes

When Glick Housing Foundation established its Housing Our Heroes program in 2018, roughly 80 veterans experiencing homelessness in Indianapolis had housing vouchers in hand but could not find a landlord willing to accept their voucher. Glick Housing Foundation collaborates with the Department of Veterans Affairs and Hoosier Veterans Assistance Foundation (HVAF) of Indiana to educate veterans about the Housing Choice Voucher rental assistance and case management services available to them. To date, 26 veterans have been housed and supported through case management, events, and connections to other veteran-serving organizations.

“I think we all are troubled at the explosion of the homeless population, and we wanted to be part of the solution to this problem. There’s no reason why veterans who’ve served our country so well should go without a home.”
– David Barrett, president of Glick Housing Foundation

Apartment Shelter Program

At the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the nonprofit organization Family Promise of Greater Indianapolis (Family Promise) sought to identify alternatives to the traditional shelter model for housing community members. They had an idea: Rent available apartments in the name of the organization to use as temporary shelters for families with children. In addition to removing the trauma associated with a shelter experience, this would create stability for a family while they work with a case manager to secure permanent housing. To help launch the Apartment Shelter Program, Glick Housing Foundation donated the use of five apartment homes.

Today, Glick Housing Foundation donates the use of 10 apartment homes. To date, this partnership has made it possible for 72 families, including 194 kids, to be housed. Sixty-five percent of all families served have been able to find permanent housing in an average of 102 days. Guided by this proven model, Family Promise has expanded the Apartment Shelter Program in partnership with other nonprofits and housing providers.

“They will never know the feeling my kids and I had when we walked in that apartment after spending months moving from place to place. Things aren’t perfect for me, but the love and support I get from Family Promise gives me the push I need to keep moving forward. To Family Promise, thank you for believing I could when I had begun to believe I wasn’t worth it.”
– Guest of the Apartment Shelter Program

Resident Spotlight

We help out each other

I’ve been here 21 years. I like living here because of the community we have. I have talked to other places and they just don’t do that [activities, resident engagement, etc.]. They don’t know their neighbors. That’s not the case here. If we don’t see our neighbors for a little bit, we ask about it. If we’re going to be away from home for a little bit, we let each other know.
