Thank you for choosing to support the mission of Holy Family Shelter. We appreciate your commitment. Your generosity will enable us to continue to serve the poor and vulnerable in central Indiana as we work to support the dignity of all people.

Holy Family Shelter (a program of Catholic Charities Indianapolis) opened in 1984, becoming the first homeless shelter in Indianapolis specifically for entire families. The shelter has the capacity to house up to 22 families on any given night. Depending on family size, there are 55-85 individuals living at the shelter every night. Holy Family Shelter serves more than 1,000 people each year, including an average of 600 homeless children. This is their "home" while they are with us and we take this responsibility to heart. We work diligently to provide food, shelter, basic material needs and a safe place for families in crisis to begin to heal. Our case managers provide comprehensive services to assist families in setting goals & priorities, obtaining life skills such as budgeting, communication skills, parenting, stress management and more as families begin their journey to permanent housing. Without your gift, we would not be able to continue to offer compassionate and professional services to those who come to our doors in search of hope and help.

We ask that you prayerfully consider your support of Holy Family Shelter. No matter the amount, all gifts are appreciated and go directly to those in need. For questions regarding your online donation, contact Cheri Bush at or 317.236.1411.

e-Check Image An e-check is an electronic check that can be used to make an online donation. To use an e-check, you need a bank account number, bank routing number and the name on the account. This is a great option for recurring gifts because bank accounts, unlike credit card numbers, rarely change.
