The Indianapolis Neighborhood Resource Center (INRC) offers training and technical assistance to help grassroots neighborhood organizations address issues that impact the quality of life in their neighborhoods. Established in 1993 as a private, not-for-profit organization, INRC strengthens the capacity of neighborhood-based organizations and neighbors to mobilize existing assets, support grassroots leadership and foster collaboration. Using the principles of Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD), INRC supports residents and other stakeholders as they build community upon the strength of their neighborhood. Through training sessions, the provision of technical assistance and individual coaching, INRC supports neighborhood-based organizations as they identify their community’s assets and mobilize its capacities. Through this work, grassroots community leaders are creating and strengthening institutions, relationships and processes that support healthy, viable and sustainable communities. INRC employs three integrated strategies that focus upon developing community assets, encouraging and empowering local and diverse leadership, promoting collaboration, and strengthening neighborhood-based organizations: Indianapolis Community Building Institute (ICBI) Technical Assistance AmeriCorps Public Allies Indianapolis
