Resident Program


Hope Center Indy is not a treatment facility.

We coordinate medical and behavioral health assessments with community service providers such as Eskenazi Health, the Jane Pauley Community Health Center, and private therapists. 

The Women of Hope live in a holistic community where each can initiate a healing process within a safe and loving family atmosphere.

Each woman participates in our program free of any cost and is never forced or coerced to remain in the program if she feels the need to exit it at any point.

Under the direction of our program director, Desiree Burnett, and the dedicated care of our capable staff, the Women of Hope are guided through a personalized success plan to help each one discover her talents, develop life skills, achieve her goals and fullest potential, and most importantly learn to live a rewarding and fruitful life.

Hope Center Indy creates a foundation with many supportive resources, programs, and outside services the residents can access. 

housing and food

Residents live in rooms adopted and decorated by our Partners of Hope. Each room has access to common kitchen, living areas and private or semi-private bathrooms.

healing through expression

Expressing emotions and thoughts through artistic opportunities is effective with individuals who have experienced years of trauma. The Art Therapeutic Support Program is designed to let the residents express where they have been, who they are and who they want to become.

12 Step Meetings

Residents in need of alternative support for alcoholism and/or addiction may attend 12 step meetings with mentors outside of the facility and one time a week within the facility.

Canine Therapy

The unconditional love between a dog and its human cannot be measured.


 Community Outreach for Financial Education. Residents learn about financial literacy.

Health and Wellness

We combine fitness and nutrition to create a healthy lifestyle. The residents attend an 8 week culinary class that incorporates nutrition and budget. We are blessed to have a workout area created by Revival Fitness and Get Fit Gyms. Various fitness classes are offered several times a week by certified instructors such as Holy Yoga, ReFit and RevWell.

trauma-informed recovery support groups

We use a faith-based curriculum which allows the residents to work at a slower pace without having to relive their trauma. This helps them develop skills and tools to reduce and ultimately eliminate symptoms of PTSD or similar disorders.

bible studies and church attendance

Bible studies are designed to be self-reflective, not intrusive, allowing the residents to develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Residents attend church services a minimum of one time a week.

worship dance therapy

Residents attend worship dance once a week.

Celebrate Recovery

Celebrate recovery is a faith based recovery program used in over 30,000 churches around the world. We encourage our residents to participate as part of their recovery.

Women Inspiring Women

 A mentorship program for women to engage with other women who have stable homes, careers and family.

Education program 

Resources available include high school equivalency testing, high school diploma completion, and access to online classes for a college degree program. As we grow, we will offer cosmetology, culinary arts, event planning, small business management, entrepreneurship, and more.
