“When I grow up I want to be a police officer. I want to help people who have been beaten and nail the bad guys who are committing crimes and being violent.”
Austin is 13, and has called Sheltering Wings home for the past year. When you read his words, your first reaction might be that he is simply lashing out at the man whose abuse he witnessed every day. But sit down across from him, and you’ll quickly realize that isn’t the case.
Sheltering Wings was formed in the name and for the sake of Jesus Christ. We will extend the love and compassion of Christ to women and their children in the desperate circumstances of domestic abuse. Christ was never coercive or offensive and neither are our services. Our assistance will be offered to any victim of any background in the name of Christ.
Sheltering Wings Center for Women is a domestic violence shelter in Danville, Indiana, serving Hendricks County and surrounding areas. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization with a Christ-centered philosophy that focuses on building stable, independent lives.
Our 68-bed shelter facility provides safe emergency housing and additional services for women and children suffering from any form of domestic abuse. Our 24-Hour Crisis Line (317-745-1496) connects victims of both genders and their advocates with help and resources.
