BRIDGING GAPS AND BRINGING COMMUNITIES TOGETHER
A recent study conducted by CityHealth reveals that Indy sits near the bottom of a 40-city study focused on seven quality of life factors. While there are more than seven areas challenging our city, Unite for Change.org is committed to connecting with neighbors and residents and grass-roots organizations who have a passion for their community and want to advocate for positive change throughout our entire city.
Sure there's progress! But, residents who recognize that there's progress and expansion in some areas of the city while advocacy and attention to undeserved, fragile communities seem neglected by those in power to make promises and change.
Unite for Change.org focuses on listening and engaging with Indy's passionate citizens to ensure that their voices have a platform to create avenues for progress based on results-oriented advocacy. We seek to UNITE concerned citizens, stakeholders, institutions, elected officials and Indy residents to educate one another to expose gaps and create strategies for sustained efforts to close these gaps to critical support services. Additionally, Unite for change.org provides the education and training necessary to ensure that neighbors have access to a proven engagement process to ensure sustainable results.
Unite with the movement and be a part of positive change today.

It's all about YOUth!
UFC has partnered with CMBCIndy to offer opportunities for Indianapolis youth! We want to meet youth ages 14-18 who are able and willing to work and thrive in meaningful employment. Enrollment is open NOW for our 8-week youth skills training program.
The Unite For Change initiative equips community advocates with a process and resources needed to improve their quality of life. Using the Asset Based Community Development methodology, UFC helps build equity among neighbors in under served communities statewide.
Servant Leadership Training
UniteForChange.org offers year-round training opportunities through our events and programs. Along with our partners, we prepare servant leaders in urban communities for service within under served areas. Most conferences and training sessions are free for Unite For Change initiative supporters.
One of the key pain points of community based initiatives in under served, urban areas is a need for marketing and communication strategies and support. Unite For Change offers needed support to help important community engagement initiatives to create, launch, communicate and sustain their impact.
