Westminster Neighborhood Services provides education support, access to basic needs, and community connections to empower neighbors and strengthen youth and families on the Near Eastside of Indianapolis.
Westminster Neighborhood Services envisions a collaborative community in which all residents are supported to reach their full potential; thus, fulfilling Christ’s call of bringing hope to the people of God.
Believing in the value and worth of all people, no services will be denied based on faith tradition. Nor does WNS offer its services on the condition that people must listen and respond to messages designed to a particular faith.
- Matthew 24:40
"Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these, you did it to me."
What's happening at Westminster
It's that time of year again! Are you ready for the 2024 Food Fight Fundraiser?
Food Fight is Westminster's biggest fundraising event of the year in support of our mission to fight hunger and provide basic needs to our neighbors on the Near Eastside.
In this "Chopped" style competition, local high school culinary programs set out against each other and compete for the title of Master Chef using items commonly found in the Westminster food pantry!
The neighborhood we serve
Westminster's holistic approach to serve the entire family is important to the thousands of neighbors that come through the doors annually. The relationship built with the families is so important; at times we might be the only ones cheering on these families and helping them navigate hard situations they face daily. 42% of the neighborhood living below the poverty level and 21% live with an annual income less than $10,000. That comes with barriers that they need help over coming, and Westminster’s services are essential to help families break down those barriers and break free from the obstacles holding them back in life.
