Help NEAR celebrate and build our next 100 homes!

100 Homes

Just eight years ago, St. Clair Place was one of the hardest-hit neighborhoods in Indianapolis. Over 43% of the properties in this Near Eastside community were vacant. With the help of many neighbors, partners, and supporters, NEAR has brought that vacancy rate down to 30%. We’ve now rehabbed or built over 100 affordable homes. We’re gearing up to build our next 100 homes in our great Near Eastside neighborhoods. And we need your help.

NEAR by the numbers



Our work at NEAR is supported primarily through individual contributions along with grants and contracts from local, state, and federal organizations which focus on revitalizing urban neighborhoods. This support goes a long way towards making the Near East a better place for its residents. Already, we have renovated more than 90 properties and provided energy efficient upgrades for 1,200 homes and businesses.

But with your added support, we could do even more.

Your donation would enable us to do more focused work in the community, and encourage leadership and active involvement from our Near East neighbors through events like the very popular Caulk of the Town.
