About us

We’ve been here on the Near Eastside of Indy for over 100 years; our Spanish expression of who we are— Mano de Amistad— for fifteen years. We love our neighbors and our neighborhood and believe God has planted us here as the people of God in this place—loving and serving each other and those around us.
