After much discussion with key individuals, we have made the difficult but correct decision to postpone the dedication of the new Center for Women & Children expansion to August 11. Due in part to COVID, a number of construction tasks will not be completed on time and many of the furnishing and appliances will not be in place. We want to present to our donors and other guests a finished product and we feel these extra few weeks will allow for that.
We pray this hasn’t inconvenienced you and you will be able to join us on August 11th as we celebrate this new addition to Wheeler and our community. We will send more details as we draw closer to our new date.
If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The dedication for the CWC expansion is now August 11, 2021 at 10am via Facebook Live.
Join us as we celebrate much more room to accommodate and care for women and children! Thanks to your support and compassion, lives will forever change as they find help, hope, and healing at Wheeler Mission’s Center for Women & Children.
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!
