About Us

The Heart House is a 72 bed homeless shelter serving individuals and families in southeastern Indiana. The Heart House not only provides a warm place to sleep and three meals a day, but we also implement a personal redevelopment program that assists residents in developing the proper life skills needed to promote successful independent living. The Heart House Inc. aspires to lift up the dignity of all people who come through the shelter doors by providing temporary housing and multiple services which produce the skills needed for the homeless to become confident independent individuals.

We offer the following programs:

EMPLOYMENT – Job Counseling & Skill Assessment
FINANCE – Budgeting & Money Management

COUNSELING – Immediate Needs Assessment
CHILD CARE – Parenting Classes

With these programs the Heart House Inc. helps enable individuals, once in crisis, to become contributing members of their communities.
