Join us for the 5th Annual Love Thy Neighborhood Awards

LISC Indianapolis started the Love Thy Neighborhood Awards in 2017 to celebrate the people and organizations that are transforming their neighborhoods — the community game changers that are making a difference. Today Dr. David Hampton, the Executive Director of LISC, joined us on Indy Style to tell us all about it! Be sure to join us this Sunday at 7 p.m. on WISH-TV to see who wins.

LOVE in the Awards title is actually an acronym that stands for the four categories of awards. Each category winner is awarded $2,500 in unrestricted funds to help further their mission.

  • L is for Livability, which includes access to art, nature, and recreation. The 2021 Livability finalists are Fonseca Theatre, The Ross Foundation, and Women in Motion.
  • O is for Opportunity, which creates quality jobs and builds human capital. The 2021 Opportunity finalists are S.H.E. Event, Cleo’s Bodega, and Accelerate Latinx.
  • V is for Vitality, which provides affordable and quality housing options. The 2021 Vitality finalists are One Home at a Time, Back on My Feet – Indianapolis, and Aspire House.
  • E is for Education, which encompasses K-12 education and workforce development. The 2021 Education finalists are PR Mallory Redevelopment: Purdue Polytechnic High School and Paramount School for Excellence Jr. High, VOICES Corp, and Latinas Welding Group.

In addition to the four categories, there will be a People’s Choice Award, and the winning organization will win $5,000!

Be sure to tune in to WISH-TV this Sunday at 7 p.m. for the Love Thy Neighborhood Awards.
