Rescue Shelter

Imagine sleeping in a car in the middle of winter…
or finding shelter on a cold, rainy evening under a bridge next to the river…
or trying to slip inside an abandoned building to get some needed rest…
or being released from jail and having absolutely nowhere to go…

Man resting on a bed at The Christian CenterThese are the very experiences that drive many to the door under the cross at the Christian Center in Anderson, Indiana - sometimes in the middle of the night. And it is here that they find shelter and rest from the streets, and a hope that healing can begin.

The Christian Center's Rescue Shelter program maintains a 24/7 ** "no turn away" policy. Immediate physical needs are met, as guests sign up for beds, eat three meals a day, take showers and get haircuts and pick out fresh clothes. Men can stay up to 30 days, during which time Christian Center staff help them to evaluate their next best step, which may include enrollment in our Men's Program or different recovery programs with other service providers in the area.

Everyone comes into the Christian Center through the emergency shelter program. Everyone comes in under the cross where...

...Healing Begins Now.


** Under our "No turn away" policy, there are circumstances in which an individual may be better served by a different resource, and through our agency management model, we help them find those resources.
