Abbie Hunt Bryce Home

About the Home

The Abbie Hunt Bryce Home first opened its doors in July 2004 after a group of concerned Indianapolis citizens recognized the need to create a home that addressed the needs of the dying poor. The Home was built to allow its residents to live out the last chapter of their lives in dignity and with respect.

The Abbie Hunt Bryce Home is not a nursing home, a hospice center, or a medical facility. Rather, it is truly a home – a home for those who have no other place to call their own.

To get a glimpse of life inside the home, read some personal stories from Abbie Hunt Bryce Home residents, compiled by University of Indianapolis students. 

Who We Serve

Since its inception in 2004, the Home has served almost 500 residents. These individuals are low-income or homeless and would have no other home to go to during their last days or months of life.  The Home is free of charge and is available to those with a terminally ill diagnosis.  

What We Do

The Abbie Hunt Bryce Home is a fully functioning home which includes: 

  • Private single rooms with semi-private baths, kitchen facilities, living rooms and family room space
  • Trained staff and volunteers who provide emotional, physical, and spiritual support to each resident, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
  • Medical assistance from community Hospice teams
  • Full collaboration with other providers of homeless services in the community
  • Leadership by a committed group of community volunteers, dedicated to providing the means necessary to carry out the mission
