INDIANAPOLIS — Support, fellowship and supplies for homeless men and women in Indianapolis was the focus of a Christmas Eve gathering at the downtown Irsay Family YMCA.

This was year-two of the event which gives hope to the homeless.

According to organizer Kim Boyd, the YMCA was even helping people find jobs. "So there's job opportunities. We want them to know that they're loved. It's a festive atmosphere where everyone is upbeat. Nobody is being judged here today and we want to receive everybody today," said Boyd.

The Hope Team and the YMCA partnered to make the event happen and and they plan to keep it going for years to come.
