The Salvation Army Family Service Center

540 Alabama St
Indianapolis, IN - 46204

 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 111 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. See our wish list for items needed below.

        Children’s services
        Assistance with finding housing
        Family budget counseling
        Life skills training
        Parenting and community resources classes
        Employment information
        Legal assistance
        Health care
        Substance abuse classes
        Domestic abuse support groups
        Voluntary spiritual counseling and Bible study

Emergency Bedspace Program , coordinated by the Salvation Army, ensures that a safe place and range of supportive services are always available for women and children escaping domestic abuse. Staff members monitor available Indianapolis area shelter space and provide daily updates to service providers. If shelters are full, families are sheltered at the Salvation Army until traditional bedspace becomes available.
The Continuing Support Program is offered to women and their children after they leave the program for independent or transitional housing. Case managers offer support, information, resources, financial assistance, referrals, and guidance towards self-sufficiency, so women may continue to develop positive relationships and healthy lifestyles.
