Southeast Community Services Joins the Alliance
Southeast Community Services in Indianapolis has joined the Alliance for Strong Families and Communities. The organization works to serve, strengthen, and support neighbors in southeast Indianapolis.
Southeast Community Services advances this mission by:
- Building a sense of community in southeast Indianapolis
- Seeking resident participation and encouraging resident leadership
- Providing resources in employment, education, and social services
- Coordinating our efforts with the Southeast Quality of Life Plan and partners
The Southeast Quality of Life Plan, which guides positive change in the area, was developed by residents and is directed by the Southeast Congress.
Southeast Community Services was organized in 1972 through Mayor Richard Lugar’s office as a consortium of area agencies and neighborhood groups to deliver needed services to the near southeast side of Indianapolis. Originally known as the Southeast Multi-Service Center, the organization shortened its name to Southeast Community Services in 2000.
Theresa Garcia, executive director, leads the organization.
