I absolutely love Westminster! I grew up attending the after school and summer program and when I grew out of the program I began volunteering and eventually started working in the youth programs and eventually ran the Adult Education program. I grew up wanting to give back to the program that molded me into who I am now. This organization does great things in the community and more importantly they are making a difference in every person no matter how small! I wouldn’t be where I am today without Westminster!

I was introduced to Westminster through my work. What an amazing group of people! They help so many people on a daily basis. People that may not otherwise get the assistance they need. They are right in the neighborhood that needs them the most. Everyone I have ever met within this organization is so caring. They really go above and beyond for the people they help.

Westminster Neighborhood Services has been a tremendous resource for the neighbors on the near east side of Indianapolis.

I've been working with Westminster for a few years now and I am amazed the number of lives that are deeply effected by the efforts the staff is putting into the near east side. It is moving to see families get relief through a warm meal and kids get additional affection from simple things like help with school work.

The impact they're having is a direct representation the solid place the staff's hearts are in.

What a great organization!

I have volunteered with Westminster Neighborhood services for several years now and I've witnessed the huge impact their work and services has had on the member of the neighborhood. They provide educational opportunities, childcare, food and meals, school supplies, Christmas baskets and many other helpful items. The neighbors are very grateful for the programs and services provided in a very organized, thoughtful manner. All staff is hard working, considerate and committed to the organization.

Westminster Neighborhood Services, Inc. is an amazing organization who helps neighbors on the Near Eastside of Indianapolis. This organization treats neighbors the way they should be treated and provides a valuable youth services program, along with family and adult services. I would recommend this organization to anyone in need of afterschool care, food pantry, soup kitchen, walk-in free health clinic, or adult education.

Great work they do for children and their families In Indy’s near east side. Also check out their annual food fight fundraising event which features schools from the city via their culinary students competing with one another in a “chopped“ style cook off.

I have been volunteering at Westminster Neighborhood Ministries for at least 10 years. First I worked in the kids' program with after school mentoring. The children and families are so eager to have extra attention and academic help. WNS supports the kids in very positive ways and the neighborhood is thankful to have them as a resource. I have also volunteered with the Food Pantry and in this low income neighborhood, so many folks are thankful to have a good meal and access to healthy food to take home. The staff is wonderful, always supportive, never judgmental.
