Provides a safe place and critical services for women, children, and men fleeing domestic violence and trauma, as well as shelter for homeless women and children. The Salvation Army Women and Childrens Center continuously coordinate with Indianapolis area shelters to ensure safe places and services are always available for individuals and their children escaping domestic abuse. As the first facility in Indianapolis to help homeless and abused persons, we have offered care, assistance, and spiritual guidance for more than 50 years.

The goal of the program is to move from crisis to sufficiency. This is the teaches a person to fish component of our mission.
