Interfaith Hospitality Network

ZPC serves homeless children and their caregivers by being part of the Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN), a local network of faith-based congregations that provides overnight shelter for homeless families. The program is run by Family Promise of Greater Indianapolis.

Several times a year ZPC hosts up to fourteen homeless individuals. During the day, guests go to work or to the Family Promise Day Center in downtown Indianapolis, where they receive social services. Older children attend school. Between 5 pm and 6 am, guests return to ZPC, where we provide lodging, meals, and hospitality.

Here are just some of the ways you can help:
> Setting up guest bedrooms in the church
> Cooking and serving meals
> Playing with the children and helping them with homework
> Staying overnight with the families
> Driving guests in the Family Promise van to and from the day center
> Tearing down guest bedrooms
> Doing laundry
> Donating food items and supplies or making a financial donation
> Being a prayer warrior; sign up online to pray daily for our guests
> Most importantly, demonstrating Christ’s love

This is a volunteer opportunity for all ages. Please consider serving as an individual or with your family, friends, or Home Group.

Neighborhood Christian Legal Clinic

Neighborhood Christian Legal Clinic (NCLC) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation offering pro bono legal representation and preventive law education to low income families, including immigrant families. ZPC is proud to partner with NCLC beginning in January of 2012.

First Presbyterian Church of Lebanon (map) and ZPC (map) host NCLC on Saturday mornings.

Every Thursday evening, volunteer attorneys conduct an interview, called an intake session, through which new clients can present their needs. To qualify for free legal services, a person needs to be living at or below 125% of the federal poverty guidelines, except for tax cases where the limit is 250%.

Next, volunteer attorneys start the evaluation process to see if there is some way we can help. If there is something potentially we can do to help, a volunteer attorney will refer the case to an expert in the specific subject matter for further review. These experts work at the NCLC in Indianapolis.

The clinic will not handle divorce or criminal cases. Typical cases the clinic does handle include:

Certain Custody/Visitation
Child Support
Certain Social Security Disability
Consumer Debt
Tax Controversies

Intake sessions will occur at:

First Presbyterian Church of Lebanon on the first, third, and when it occurs, fifth Saturdays at 9 am.

and Zionsville Presbyterian Church's in Room 108 on second and fourth Thursday evening at 6 pm
