OVERVIEW / HISTORY

In 1973 a group of concerned citizens met to discuss a lack of facilities for troubled youth in Hamilton County.  They incorporated later that year as Hamilton Centers, Inc.  Funding from a Lilly Endowment grant allowed the first group home to open in Arcadia in 1975.

Hamilton Centers, later known as Hamilton Centers Youth Service Bureau, was founded to provide shelter for abandoned, neglected, abused, homeless or pre-delinquent youth in Hamilton County.  The agency has evolved in response to community needs to provide programs to meet the physical, social, emotional, educational and self-discovery needs at-risk youth and their families in Hamilton and surrounding counties.

As the needs of our young people have changed over time, so have the scope and type of services offered by what is now Promising Futures of Central Indiana. As of January 1, 2010 Hamilton Centers Youth Service Bureau, Inc changed it name to Promising Futures Of Central Indiana.
