Homelessness knows no season! On any given night, there are over 1,600 homeless men, women, youth, and children right here in central Indiana. These are our neighbors. They are classmates of our kids. They are people who need our help. Outreach and Wheeler Mission serve hundreds of homeless people every night of the year.
● Outreach is a faith-based nonprofit organization in Indianapolis, Indiana, that reaches out to homeless young men and women (ages 14-24) with the compassion of Jesus Christ. Our goal is to equip and empower these at-risk young people to achieve stability and life transformation. We believe in the redemptive power of Christ to help homeless youth find a home by offering them the hospitality of Christ, journeying with them and encouraging transformational guidance, and instilling in them hope to exit the streets and move toward a stable lifestyle.
● Wheeler Mission helps the homeless and needy in Indiana. Founded in 1893, Wheeler is the oldest continuously operating ministry of its kind in the state of Indiana. Our mission is to provide Christ-centered programs and services for the homeless and those in need. Our Vision is to see every man, woman, and child we serve equipped to be productive citizens who enjoy lasting success in Christ.
All donations are tax-deductible. A receipt will be emailed to donors from CrowdRise. All funds will be held and distributed by National Christian Foundation and donations will be equally split between Wheeler Mission and Outreach to be used to help our community’s homeless.
Checks should be made out to National Christian Foundation. Write in the memo “Strength In Our Streets”.
