There is Hope
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 provides emergency housing for all women and children suffering from any form of domestic abuse. We build stable and independent lives through essential programs offered in a supportive and Christ-centered environment. If you need help, call our Crisis Line 317-745-1496, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, or contact the shelter online.
