One of SEND’s most important missions
is developing and improving affordable housing options for low-
and middle-income families. Our home repair programs help eligible
residents receive necessary repairs to their homes for little
or no cost. We work to expand rental options, help businesspeople
learn to become good landlords, and help tenants work toward
buying their own homes. We also purchase and renovate neighborhood
homes to create more affordable housing.
While we don’t deal directly with foreclosure prevention,
we do attempt to educate owners, buyers and renters about issues
like maintaining good credit. We also make referral to agencies
such as the Indianapolis Neighborhood Housing Partnership, the
Legal Aid Society, and Momentive Credit Counseling, when appropriate.
