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.
(as of 2017)
Join us at Indy Shield CrossFit (IMPD Training Academy) for an affiliate competition and take a stand for our homeless neighbors. The first “workout” is fundraising for Outreach and Wheeler Mission, which will help them provide critical food, shelter, and care for the homeless who come through their doors. Will you help us “Strength In Our Streets?” Together, we can help change lives!
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.
Guests from Wheeler Mission and Outreach say "thank you"!
A couple guests from Wheeler Mission and Outreach Inc. wanted to say "thank you" to everyone who donated and raised money to help them in their time of great need. The record amount of $114,000 raised this year couldn't come at a better time. This year, the number of homeless youth served at Outreach is up 15%, and Wheeler Mission is currently serving around 1,000 meals/day to nearly 500 individuals who are coming in for shelter or help with life-threatening addictions. Your incredible effort means that these people are being met with open, loving arms, and offered the help they so desperately need.Posted by Strength in our Streets on Friday, June 30, 2017
