Together, We Can Make a Difference

All sponsorships go to support the programs of the Crisis Center

Sponsorship Opportunities

The Wine Fest & Auction raises funds to help runaway, pushed out, homeless kids who may be abused or neglected. Indiana is one of two states with a sharp rise in child abuse fatalities. The Crisis Center provides a pathway to a positive future through the Alternative House emergency shelter and Promises long-term program. Boys and girls, ages 10 to 18, are provided services to reslove problems and return home or to a safe enviroment. 


Safe Place and Safely Home reach out to children and youth whose living situation endangered them, providing a fast safe entry to services. Teen Court is a delinquency prevention program that turns youth offenders into upholders of law and order.
