Program areas at Wheeler Mission Ministries

Wheeler Mission provides temporary emergency shelter to men experiencing homelessness at facilities in indianapolis and bloomington. The short-term, temporary programs at these sites are designed to assist homeless and/or disadvantaged men access basic needs while assessing the factors that led them to experiencing homelessness.breakfast, lunch, dinner, showers, clothing, day room, chapel services, and case management (with referrals to onsite and offsite social service agencies) are provided. Medical services are also available.whether they are dealing with addiction, mental health, medical, occupational, or educational issues, guests are encouraged to enter other long-term, residential or addiction recovery programs.in indianapolis, Wheeler serves as the principal agency in providing shelter during inclement weather to any person seeking refuge as part of the community's winter contingency plan for those experiencing homelessness.
Wheeler Mission provides an environment that is safe for women and women with children experiencing homelessness in indianapolis. Services offered take a holistic approach by providing physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual assistance. Hundreds of women and children enter through Wheeler's shelter doors seeking food, clothing, and housing. These women find not only these basic needs available, but also experience love and compassion from staff who deliver strength-based, person-centered care to each woman in need. Counseling, job-readiness training, assistance with job procurement, education assessment and tutoring, medical services, and counseling are made available at Wheeler's center for women & children.
We have separate transitional, long-term, residential programs for men and women struggling with substance abuse and addiction. The hebron program, for men, is located on a 288-acre site in monroe county. The higher ground program, for women, is located on a residential site in indianapolis. These programs focus on total life change through a relationship with christ, rather than a single focus on the addiction. Guests learn to work, relate to others in the program, and attend biblically-taught classes. Curriculum includes recovery classes, group and individual counseling, and bible studies.the program offers many avenues for developing healthy relationships, so each graduate leaves with a secure support system in place. They learn what it means to take ownership of their actions, engage in seeking forgiveness, and address their own forgiveness issues. The goal is not just to see men and women use this training for themselves, but to also see them use this training to learn how to help others.
General ministry pool services other program activities, such as transportation and food procurment & distribution.
Wheeler Mission thrift store provides for the needs of the community through the below cost sale of donated merchandise.
Food service program provides food to the multiple shelters and residential centers operated by wmm.
