New campus opens for adult students

Students from Christel House DORS, the adult high school, now have a fourth campus option. A partnership between Christel House Indianapolis and the Fay Biccard Glick Neighborhood Center will also provide new opportunities for family support.

“This partnership is an exciting opportunity for adult students to receive services provided by both organizations,” says Emily Masengale, CEO, Christel House Indianapolis. “Adults will have access to childcare, the food pantry, high school classes, career and financial coaching, college credits, trade certifications, transportation assistance through bus passes and gas cards, and much more.” The Fay Biccard Glick Neighborhood Center has been serving families since 1984. The Neighborhood Center utilizes an intergenerational working family model, serving all ages from infants to seniors. Patrice Duckett, Executive Director, says the organization aims to eliminate barriers that hinder clients from becoming financially sustainable. “Partnering with a proven partner like Christel DORS on education is genuinely catalytic,” she says. “It is a priceless opportunity to have a partnership that invests in its student's success as much as we support their family and financial goals. We are excited about the first year and look forward to the success of our clients on the northwest side of Indianapolis.”
