 Caring for Ourselves & Our Neighbors

The 46205, 46208, and 46218 zip codes (surrounding Broadway) have a high rate of infant mortality.  Several of our neighbors have also been impacted by Black Maternal Childbirth Death which is devastating to families and communities.  

Broadway's Maternal Child Health Team seeks to  walk beside pregnant and newly parenting women in our neighborhood, as well as, provide education on Safe Sleep, and host Community Baby Showers.  

If you are an expectant or newly parenting mother looking for support and encouragement, or if would like to become part of our Maternal Child Health Team at Broadway, please contact Stephanie Caraway by clicking the button below.

Ending the 
HIV Epidemic

The CDC and Health & Human Services have set goals of 75% reduction in HIV transmission by 2025 and 90% by 2030.  These are bold goals especially for our community.

Marion County is one of 48 counties identified as a hotspot for HIV.  From the beginning, the Black community has not received the same attention to combat the incidence and prevalence of HIV/AIDS, and continues to experience a disproportionate impact today. In the Indianapolis TGA in 2021, 48.8% of new HIV diagnoses were African American (and another 10.1% are Latinx).  

Because we love and care for our neighbors we are working hard to develop new leaders who will provide energy, creativity, and vision so that together we can End the HIV Epidemic.

Reproductive Health

Structural racism, reproductive coercion, and social and financial disadvantage serve as challenges to woman seeking comprehensive contraceptive information and access.   Path4You provides both online and in-person reproductive health and contraceptive education to women, and access to no cost to patient birth  control.  Go to www.path4you.org for more information.
Planned Parenthood of Indiana Teen Council meets at Broadway on Tuesday evenings 4:30-8:30pm.
