Family and Adult Services

The Family and Adult Services program assists residents in the Westminster community who are struggling financially. The food pantry, soup kitchen, adult education program, adult education program, and Gennesaret Free Clinic, all provide families with basic needs.

High school equivelancy (HSE) Classes

Westminster Neighborhood Services believes in partnering with outside organizations that excel in their experience. The Adult Education programs offered at Westminster include some of the best programs in the city of Indianapolis.

The goal is to offer hands-on classes, workshops, and other useful skills for low-income residents at minimal to no cost. Programs focus on, but are not limited to:

  • cooking and nutrition

  • fitness

  • basic math and reading

  • parenting

  • anger management

  • job readiness and resume building

  • financial literacy

Neighbors are welcome to participate in as many classes and activities as they choose.

High School Equivalency classes are on summer break and will resume at a later date.

Westminster’s goal is to continually expand its programming and community partnerships to provide services that meet the need of families living on the Near Eastside of Indianapolis, within Westminster’s service area.
