Center Township Trustee LaDonna Freeman launches homeless outreach program



Indianapolis, Indiana – LaDonna Freeman, a trustee for Center Township, is the driving force behind a brand-new Indianapolis homeless outreach initiative.

Thanks to a grant from the Foresters Community Grants program, Faith in a Case on Wheels will be able to distribute luggage to Indianapolis’ homeless friends.

“We just want the homeless community to know that they are not forgotten, we’re here to help,” Freeman said.

The township trustee added, “Living downtown in Indianapolis and seeing a lot of the homeless outside in the streets…God gave me a vision years ago before I decided to run for trustee. When I would hit a stoplight, I would see homeless across the street carrying trash bags and I would see sometimes their bag would be busted and I would see stuff falling on the ground.”

Faith in a Case on Wheels is funded in part by public donations and a community grant from Foresters Financial.

The organization will give 50 homeless individuals a suitcase filled with “ponchos when it rains to cover them up, some items like washcloths, deodorant, a toothbrush, and toothpaste, a First Aid kit and hand sanitizer, scarfs, and socks.”
