Founded as a settlement house for German Jewish immigrants in 1875, Concord Neighborhood Center is the oldest and longest operating settlement house in the state of Indiana. As the needs of the community evolved over time, so, too, did the center's mission and vision. Today's Concord's mission is: "To offer a variety of social, recreational, health and educational activities to neighborhood residents of all ages; to collaborate with other agencies to provide decentralized or special services for the community; and to serve as facilitator for the southside community in addressing their needs/interests and supporting their values in procuring appropriate resources."
This mission is realized through six core programs: early childhood education, school-aged youth development, comprehensive teenage development, basic social services, HIV healthcare coordination and a senior and mature adult program. Annually, over 2,100 people are impacted by these six core programs, and additional partnerships and community collaborations ensure Concord can best meet the community's needs and reach new and different people.
Concord's catchment area is the near-Southside of Indianapolis, defined as north of Thompson Road; east of the White River; south of Washington Street; and west of I-65.
