We live and work for these moments…a resident came into our office beaming. She had just come back from a court appearance and the judge and prosecutor were so proud of her. Not only had she removed herself from an abusive relationship, but she had also begun to take the steps to break the chains of addiction…
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.
Few things feel as frustrating and disheartening as the sense that we’re caught in a vicious cycle. We hope for progress, and then discover we’ve ended up right where we started.
Victims of domestic abuse are typically caught in a cycle that is truly vicious—and deadly.
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.
