Our 10th Annual Tackling Homelessness Event will be on Monday, September 29th, 2014. 

Tackling Homelessness was started by former Colts defensive tackle, Josh Williams and his wife Marcella. For the 10th anniversary of the event, we are fortunate to have Josh and Marcella kick off the event this year. 


This event has had a great impact on fundraising for Horizon House. Each year the amount of funds raised increases do to the demands and needs for individuals experiencing homelessness.   



Tackling Homelessness is Horizon House's annual sold-out fundraising event held in collaboration with the Indianapolis Colts at their training complex on W. 56th St.

This casual, family friendly event will be hosted by offensive lineman and Indianapolis native Joe Reitz & his wife Jill.  Other Colts players will be in attendance to show their support for our homeless neighbors in Indianapolis!  Last year, fan favorites like  Donald Brown, Anthony Castanzo, Coby Fleener and others were in attendance signing autographs. Joe Reitz

Rather than the standard black tie gala event, attendees are usually dressed in their favorite Colts apparel as they enjoy a bar-b-que buffett and live music from the Hunter Smith Band (former punter and fan favorite for the Indianapolis Colts).

With a wide array of both live and silent auction items, as well as a raffle and other fun events, there is something for everyone.

So come and be inspired as we celebrate the accomplishments of our neighbors who have ended their own homeless situation, and help us end homelessness for hundreds of other people in 2014!

This event is sold out every year by our corporate sponsors and supporters, so it's a great event to gain recognition and show your support for our homeless neighbors in Indianapolis through sponsorship.
