Cindy Houston Emergency Shelter

Call (812) 336-0846

If you have been a victim of violence, the first thing you might want to consider is your own safety. Contact our 24/7 help and crisis line at 812.336.0846 to learn about options for safe housing, community resources, counseling, legal advocacy, and support groups.

Middle Way House provides emergency shelter to individuals throughout six counties across southern Indiana whose current home is not safe due to violence (this could include domestic and sexual violence as well as human trafficking). The 30-bed shelter is a safe place available to survivors and their children until they have found an appropriate, affordable place to live. Survivors with children sleep in a family room and single individuals may sleep in a room with up to three other survivors. Residents contribute to the upkeep of their own and group spaces, often share evening meals, and take advantage of programs designed to help them move forward with their lives. Emergency shelter is not a long-term solution, but is a critical step for many people to take so they can safely make long-term decisions.
