Office of the Indiana Attorney General

Attorney General > Office Initiatives > Community Outreach Community Outreach

The Attorney General's Office has a community outreach program to serve the growing number of Hoosiers who are facing problems. This program is designed to bring services to the front lines for the citizens of our communities who are most in need. The program is executed by four Outreach team members.

Underserved populations within the state such as the elderly, low-income, mentally and physically disabled, service members, veterans, new immigrants, those without Internet access, homeless and the unemployed are the focus of the office outreach. Team members reach out to those in need to help educate and prevent them from becoming victims and offer assistance to those who have fallen victim.

Outreach specialists identify the communities in greatest need of assistance by working directly with the pro bono commission, not-for-profits, Triad groups, church groups, government offices and community-based organizations.

Foreclosure prevention and identity theft prevention are believed to be among the two greatest needs statewide. However, based on the varying needs in each community, services and education materials are tailored for each event. Contact us at outreachservices@atg.in.gov to schedule a workshop. These services include:
