At Shepherd, doing life with their neighbors and seeing the felt needs first-hand of those around them makes a huge difference in their fight to end generational poverty. Although some causes are systemic, and others are situational, all restrict people's ability to navigate life.

Partner of the Month


A new start for neighbors in need.


Since 1893, our doors have been open to help those experiencing homelessness, hunger, and addiction. They need help. They need healing. Most of all, they need hope for a new start. YOU make help, healing and hope possible at Wheeler! Through God’s love, and your support and prayers, people are transformed from hurting to hopeful.


Who We Are

Wheeler is a non-denominational, Christian, social services organization, which provides critically needed goods and services to individuals experiencing homelessness, poverty, and need in Central and South Central Indiana without regard to race, color, sexual orientation, creed, national origin, or religion.


Wheeler is not a church, but does cooperate with many different churches that are concerned about poverty and homelessness in the inner city. Founded in 1893, Wheeler is the oldest continuously operating ministry of its kind in the state of Indiana. Click here for more Wheeler Mission history. We have 9 locations, dozens of ministries, a $16.2 million budget, and 180+ employees. Wheeler is the largest and most diverse ministry of its kind in the state.
