Support Indy’s Ukrainian Community

People come to Indianapolis from all walks of life—all over the world. But at the end of the day, we are all Hoosiers. 

In this Life in Indy feature, Ukrainian expat Svitlana Ramer shares the story behind her move to Indiana—and how she found her community. Svitlana is now the President of the Ukrainian Society of Indiana, leading local efforts to support Ukraine and raise awareness about the war.

About

LIFE IN INDY

Imagine a place where passion meets innovation.

That’s the Indianapolis region—a place where creators and doers come together to inspire progress and discover solutions. Where our hospitality is only matched by our ambition. And where everyone can find their community in a place they love to call home.

Life in Indy is all about creating the life you want to live. Take a few minutes to explore our region, and you just might realize that Indianapolis is the perfect place for you to grow.

Explore a walkable downtown.

No car—no problem. Indianapolis is interconnected and accessible, so you can see the sites around downtown without ever needing to call a ride. With 153 miles of trails and about 100 miles of bike lanes, Indy is built for the runner, bike rider, and eco-friendly explorer in all of us.

Raise a family in one of the country’s best cities.

In recent years, both Carmel and Fishers, Indiana, have consistently ranked as one of the top places to live in the United States. Just north of Indianapolis, these suburb cities offer amazing school systems, affordable living, and a family-focused community that’s perfect for your forever home.
