The Indy Star had an article recently about the resources to shelter those who are homeless in Indianapolis.  Compared to cities our size around the country, Indianapolis ranks second highest in depending on faith communities to provide emergency shelter for those in need.  77% of beds for Indianapolis' homeless population are provided by faith-based organizations.  The largest provider of shelter is Wheeler Mission, supported by many churches (including Fairview).
