Indiana compassionate ministry center begins Shalom Project
Indianapolis, Indiana

(WTHR, February 24) Reaching out to people who live in one of the city's more troubled neighborhoods is the goal of the Shalom Project.

It's the latest in the city's ongoing initiative to take back the six neighborhoods with the highest crime rates and it comes from a community partner.

Tuesday afternoon, Public Safety Director Troy Riggs applauded Pastor Jay Height and the Shepherd Community Center for taking on new challenges.

"This is one example where the Department of Public Safety isn't leading, but it's following and supporting," Riggs said.

Shepherd Community Center has played an important role in its east side neighborhood for 30 years. It has a school, pre-K program, and helps adults with jobs, housing and life skills.
