Forest Manor Multi-Service Center (FMMSC) is a community based social service organization located on the near east side of Indianapolis. The Center was founded in 1973 by a group of concerned residents and was originally sponsored and operated by the City of Indianapolis. In 1977, the Center became a non-profit organization and in 1980, we began extensive, much-needed outreach programs to youth and adults.
Our mission is to empower the lives of our neighbors by offering individuals and families the services and support they need to become self-sufficient. Approximately 90% of our clients are single women with an average of two children and 75% of our catchment area is African-American. The average per capita income in the FMMSC service area is $16,318, with 24.6% of the families living below the poverty line.
