In 1996, Eric Howard was on a mission. He wanted to help the city's homeless teens live the life they envisioned for themselves through the power of faith. The result was Outreach Inc., a non-profit organization aimed at assisting homeless teens in Indianapolis.

Outreach Inc. was the first organization in the city to focus specifically on the needs of homeless teens. These youths come to Outreach when they are out of options, and are often abused, neglected, or defeated. Outreach supplies them with tools they need to reach their goals. And at Outreach, success is personalized. Whether the teen is trying to graduate from high school or learning to balance life as a new parent, the staff is with them every step of the way.

As founder and CEO, Howard's vision surpassed his expectations. It has grown into an organization of 15 staff members and hundreds of volunteers. This year alone, the program will graduate 25 homeless teens from high school and continues to look for new ways to support them in their goals.
