Christamore House was founded in 1905 by two Butler University students. Its mission is to provide the very best child and youth educational services, senior programming and life skills training to the residents of Haughville and the Near-Westside neighborhoods.
The Christamore House, through education, partnerships and accountability empowers the people of Haughville and the Near-Westside to be self-sufficient and contributing members to a safe and healthy community.
Its many programs focus on the personal and family development of area residents, and include an army childhood education center, after school L.E.A.P., PREP and STEM programs, a family strengthening department which includes adult education, counseling, emergency clothing, food and infant supplies, and utility assistance, a senior citizen program, and Indy PAL Boxing. Christamore House is a United Way agency.
