Neighborhood Branches

 

We work with community partners near our branches to connect immigrants and refugees with the services they need close to their home and work. We have partnered with social service agencies, health care centers, schools, faith communities, job training centers, and other organizations that can provide direct help. Clients can get help in English, Spanish, French, Arabic, Burmese and Kiswahili.  If you speak a different language, we have other Natural Helpers who can assist you. Our Natural Helpers speak 40 different languages.

At our neighborhood branches, our Natural Helpers help new immigrants get off to a good start in Indianapolis. Our Natural Helpers are immigrants who have already experienced the challenge of moving to a new place, learning a new language, finding a job and establishing a home in the United States.

Beginning January 2019, we will not longer have branches with regular schedules. We will instead have pop-up branches. Scroll down (below map) for more details.

Beginning on January 2019:
In order to reach more immigrants, the Immigrant Welcome Center will discontinue branch operations in specific locations in order to start pop-up at various locations throughout the city.
Our pop-up branches are staffed by our Natural Helpers, immigrants who have already experienced the challenge of moving to a new place, learning a new language, finding a job and establishing a home in the United States.
If you would like to host a pop-up branch at your place of worship, school, ESL class, community center, or organization, please contact Kwesi Brown at kbrown@immigrantwelcomecenter.org or 317.808.2326.
