We provide holistic, long-term restorative care which gives survivors a chance to rebuild their lives in a safe, loving, and supportive environment.
We’ve developed avenues of support through our in-house community services and partnerships, to create a more significant impact in our local community.
Our in-house ministries and partners reach the lost, provide ways for believers to grow in their faith, and build the Kingdom of God.
Our businesses provide funding, gainful employment in sober environments, and practical opportunities for our residents to obtain financial autonomy.

Mental health stability /

or resolutions to court cases
to family and/or children
I will soon celebrate six years sober! Six years without heroin, six years without crack, six years without meth, and six years without a needle. I never thought it was possible for me to get clean, let alone become a productive member of society.
I will continue to share my story in hopes of helping others. We do recover! To Him, be all the glory, honor, and praise.
Giving to others in need is not easy, but Pastor Nolen, his family, and all the volunteers and staff members have truly blessed my life and shown me the love of Jesus that I have never seen before, and I will never forget. Thank you, Hope Center volunteers and staff, for making a difference in the world and being part of the change you want to see.
I have since gotten my certification to be a Community Health Worker, and it is my true desire to one day be on staff with the Hope Center, so I can share God’s love as it was shared with me.
I want to educate society on the lifestyle and mentality of the street to better assist with bringing people like me into His love. It is an overwhelming, neverending, reckless kind of love that cannot be found anywhere else.
Hope Center Indy provided me with gainful employment and as a result, I was able to enroll in a program for professionals overcoming addictions.
I am now a graduate of the Take Heart Residential program and licensed to practice nursing again. My God loved me back from despair. I am now thriving and excited to share my testimony of victory with the world.

These businesses serve three clear purposes:
To generate income for our programs, thus making the Hope Center self-sustaining
To give our Residents avenues to learn employment and life skills
To employ our Residents, enabling them to secure gainful income as they participate in Take Heart Residential, Grace House, or Hope Community
