We provide creative solutions for the tough issues in our city.


You believe that people are valuable and worthy of love, but you aren’t sure where to start or how to help?

Imagine a stronger, safer, life-giving community where everyone feels valuable and loved. Sadly, it isn’t the reality for some of our neighbors in Anderson’s low-income neighborhoods who are plagued with challenges like adequate affordable housing, transportation, access to healthy whole foods, and quality health care. You want to do something to help, but you don’t think you have the time, knowledge, or skills it takes to make a difference. Even if you did, you wouldn’t know where to begin.

We get it.
We’re here to help.

Many of our volunteers and donors felt the same way before they connected with us. That’s why we began The LOT Project back in 2009. Through The LOT Project, hundreds of volunteers have served the most vulnerable in our community. Since then, we’ve continued to find creative ways to impact Anderson.

Hey friend, I believe you have what it takes to make a difference.

Here’s how you can make a difference.

We’ve made it simple to get involved. If you are ready to volunteer, sign up for our volunteer orientation. We know there can be some fear and uncertainty when engaging with people who seem different than you. We work hard to provide a safe environment and a guided experience for each of our volunteers.

While you are waiting to volunteer, or if you’re not yet ready to volunteer, you can start making a difference today by supporting us financially.

Don’t look back on today with regret – wishing you had used your time, talents, and treasure to show people they are valuable and loved. Get involved today by volunteering or donating to The LOT Project. We guarantee you’ll see the transformation in your city and yourself.
