For over 20 years The Caring Place has been bringing hope to many of the at risk neighborhoods of Indianapolis. Though we are a ministry to families and people of all ages, we are best known for The Caring Place Saturday Program. During the past 22 years we have brought the message of hope to well over 20,000 children through our Saturday Program.
The message has not remained in them alone, they bring it home to their families. As a result we have seen families that were falling apart, rebuilt and marriages that were broken, restored. Not everyone that passes through our doors or rides our busses will be immediately changed by the message of hope. Our purpose is to plant the seed of hope deep into their lives so when it is needed it will grow.
Through the year, we have special events all with the purpose of expressing hope. We have given away college scholarships, honored single moms and fully refurbished bedrooms for some of our very own CP Sidewalk kids. We help organize a 'Back-To-School Blast' partering with Shepherd Community Center and Jireh Sports, handing out backpacks full with school supplies to thousands of children in our community. The holidays are packed! As we host a Thanksgiving Giveaway, where thousands of families receive groceries for their Thanksgiving day meal. We also host something called "The Caring Place Christmas Store".... check out the video below to hear about it!

Leading a Bible study to a small group of people is a tremendous honor. The time and location of each Bible study is TBD by the Caring Place Reach and you. Weekly meetings and material will be provided to assist you.
B O Y S T O M E N (Juvenile Center)
Two Saturdays a month we have a team serving in the Juvenile Center. It is an amazing opportunity as we share Hope with young people who caught without Hope. Currently, this is a men's only team, but we would like to expand to create a women's team that would minister to the girls.
