Salvation Army Shelter for Women and Children
The Salvation Army Shelter for Women and Children provides a safe place for homeless and abused women and children in perhaps their greatest time of need. Established as the first facility in Indianapolis to help homeless and abused women and children, we have offered care, assistance, and guidance to women for more than 50 years. The Center is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Our 126 bed facility features rooms for both single women and women with children.
Upon admission to the Center, the needs of a woman and her children are assessed by a case manager. Immediate medical, nutritional, and shelter needs are met. Safety and security measures allow women to focus on rebuilding their lives free of danger, continued abuse and the uncertainty of the streets. Children learn and play in a warm and nurturing environment.
