Dawn Adams is the kind of person you meet once and never forget. Her constant smile and enthusiastic spirit spreads motivation wherever she goes, and everyone who meets Adas feels lucky to have gained a new friend.

She loves the sense of community that she has experienced while residing in Fishers with her husband, Steve, their twin daughters and dog, Judd.

As the community relations director of Food4Souls, Dawn is a liaison between her friends without homes and the resources that can assist them, often networking with social workers, employers and recovery homes. Food4Souls is a nonprofit founded in 2013 by a group of Heartland Church members. It will soon be expanding with the addition of Daniel’s House in downtown Indianapolis, which will provide a safe refuge environment and offer services, including art therapy and life skills training.
