Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

1. Educational - The City Outreach Foundation takes the education of our youth very seriously. Many inner-city children and teenagers do not receive a quality education because of neighborhood poverty and crime.
2. Addiction Recovery - There is an opioid crisis in America. According to the Richard M. Fairbanks Foundation, in Indiana, “Statewide, more than 11,000 people die each year from tobacco and more than 1,100 died in 2014 due to drug poisoning. The economic impact on Indiana is also devastating. The annual economic burden in Indiana from tobacco is $6.8 billion. In 2014, drug overdose fatalities in our state resulted in $1.4 billion in medical costs and lost lifetime earnings." 3. Homelessness - Hammond, IN and the surrounding areas have many homeless citizens who are in need of a safe, warm place, where they can have food.
