The public is invited to attend.

Homeless Indy mom builds bright future

Five years ago, Brenda Wolf was homeless and struggling to meet her family's most basic needs. What she found when she signed up for a LISC Financial Opportunity Center program in Indianapolis changed her life. "Sometimes, bad things happen to good people, and you get in a position where you need help," she tearfully recounts in a new United Way video. "When I came here, all my doors opened." Today, Wolf owns a home, works at a prestigious law firm and sees her children thriving. Nationwide, LISC supports more than 70 FOC programs like the one operated by Southeast Community Center in Indianapolis, where Wolf got the help she needed.
