COVID-19 Volunteer Restrictions: Volunteers ages 65+ are able to return!

As COVID-19 vaccines are becoming available to the public, Damien Center is easing some of the restrictions put in place for volunteers. We will now allow volunteers over the age of 65 to return and encourage those age 70+ to get the vaccine, if able.

We still ask that those with underlying health conditions that may put them at increased risk of severe illness from the COVID-19 virus refrain from volunteering for the time being.

Expanding Our Services: Damien Center is growing!

As part of our ongoing efforts to better serve our community, we are so excited to announce that the Damien Center is opening a satellite location! We will be partnering with Community Alliance of the Far Eastside (CAFE) to offer testing, prevention, case management, emergency assistance, and housing services on the far east side of Indianapolis. As we look to the future, we will expand into medical care
