Wheeler Mission is a non-denominational, Christian, social services organization, which provides critically needed goods and services to the homeless, poor, and needy of central Indiana without regard to race, color, creed, national origin or religion.
Wheeler is not a church, but does cooperate with many different churches that are concerned about poverty and homelessness in the inner city.
Founded in 1893, Wheeler is the oldest continuously operating ministry of its kind in the state of Indiana. Click here for more history. With eight locations, dozens of ministries, a budget of $13.5 million, and almost 200 employees, Wheeler is also the largest and most diverse ministry of its kind in the state.
The word Hebron itself means fellowship or community. The book of Joshua records for us that, in Old Testament days, there were to be Cities of Refuge. Someone who had killed a person unintentionally could go to a city of refuge, and stay there without fear of of retribution. Hebron was once such city. The “manslayer” would stay there until the death of the sitting high priest, and then could safely return home. Today, Jesus is the high priest who died for us, so that we–the innocent and the guilty–can return safely home.
Wheeler Mission Hebron addiction recovery program at Hunt Training Center is a long-term, residential program in a remote setting, about 50 miles South of Indianapolis and is situated on 285 acres just North of Bloomington Indiana, bordering the Morgan Monroe State Forest. It is dedicated to the spiritual rehabilitation of men in alcohol and drug addiction and their families. We do this by ministering to the spiritual, emotional, and physical needs of the addicted person. Our program is based on the premise of giving a man an organized opportunity to begin helping himself. We provide him with an atmosphere conducive to achieving the goal of developing a life-changing relationship with God.
Hebron is a demanding, intense, program. Each participant makes a twelve (12) month commitment to Hebron. National studies have shown that addicts completing a year long treatment program have a 75% chance of recovery.
We make no apologies for the fact that we believe the Christian approach to addiction recovery produces the most meaningful, effective, and enduring results. God changes people, and He can change you if you are willing to be changed.
