What is 91 Place?

91 Place is a transitional housing program on the near-east side of Indianapolis serving youth ages 18-24 facing homelessness. We are a home with community, relationships, and a familial environment at its core, and we aim to be a safe place for unhoused youth to live, grow, and thrive.

91 Place uses an innovative, holistic approach to disrupting generational poverty and chronic homelessness by providing early intervention for youth approaching adulthood who are experiencing housing instability. We currently operate three transitional homes in Indianapolis. House mentors live alongside the youth creating an environment of safety, growth, and encouragement and provide individualized and necessary life-skills training.

In addition to transitional housing, 91 Place provides mental health supports for our residents and the community at our therapy center, The Haven. We own and operate Neidhammer Coffee Co. as part of our workforce development program. The youth participate in an ongoing workforce development curriculum and learn and practice employability skills in a safe, supportive environment.

Our mission is to establish consistent and healthy relationships with youth experiencing homelessness through stable housing, mental health supports, and workforce development opportunities.

Our vision for those who are involved with 91 Place is that through redemptive relationships, youth who have experienced homelessness embody a better future for themselves and their future families.

These are our Core Values at 91 Place

Life of Opportunity

By creating opportunities, we unlock potential, empower self-respect, and reveal the limitless possibilities of life.

AUTHENTIC INTEGRITY

By recognizing the value of commitment, honesty, and collaboration, we understand our responsibility to make choices in the best interest of the greater good.

EMPATHETIC ACCOUNTABILITY

By holding ourselves to a standard of excellence, we understand the importance of accountability in achieving our highest potential.

COMMUNITY OF COMPASSION

By approaching relationships with respect, we see the best in one another, calling forth to reveal virtues, strengths, and talents.

Christian Love

91 Place is guided by Christian faith; we welcome, serve, and love every person. We act with empathy, grace, dignity, and patience even when things are hard because all people have infinite value.

91 Place exists as a direct response to conversations with youth experiencing homelessness.

Over and over, we asked the question, “What is the one thing that would change everything?” Almost every time, they would answer “a family.”

It is a recognition that the establishment of familial bonds holds the key to unlocking profound positive change in their journey toward stability and self-discovery.

Since 2019, we’ve served more than 100 youth and seen countless accomplishments & milestones. We strive to reverse generational poverty and chronic homelessness.

91 Place began as a pilot program in December 2019 housing two youth on a budget of $5,000.

When we saw that our holistic, relationship-based response was working, we continued to raise funds and haven’t stopped.

Everything we do revolves around three foundational values: dignifying the marginalized, creating opportunities, and loving transformationally.

Through transitional housing, life-skills training, mentorship, and workforce development, paired with mental-health services and trauma-responsive care, our residents receive wraparound services to provide a comprehensive response to housing insecurity.
