Indianapolis is in the midst of a crisis, with women and children desperate for safety, shelter, and stability. Our team at Wheeler Mission already serves thousands each year, but so many more need our help.
We’ve decided to do more and serve more…But we need YOU!
Join us in “Building for Change!”
Women and children are the fastest growing segment of the homeless population, with 85% of homeless families headed by single women.
Every night, we serve increasing numbers of women and children. All the beds are filled in our Center for Women & Children, but we almost always have more women and children than beds. Just to give everyone in need a place to sleep, we regularly put dozens of cots on our gym floor.
I've been here for 3 weeks now and Wheeler has helped me out with having a safe place to sleep, off the streets, and help getting myself together to move on with my life. They've helped me out a lot.
To meet the increased need for shelter, we’ve launched our BUILDING FOR CHANGE CAMPAIGN and need your help to make the next expanded center for women & children a reality!
