Due to the nature of this service opportunity, we require all volunteers for Winter Contingency Support to be female. If you are a male and interested in serving at Wheeler Mission, please browse opportunities at our Men's Services locations.
During the coldest months of the year (November-March), Wheeler Mission provides additional space to shelter even more of our city's homeless neighbors. Join Winter Contingency Support as we come together to offer a warm, safe place to those who have no place to go in Indianapolis. Volunteers are needed to help check-in and greet guests, show hospitality, and maybe even provide snacks, play cards, or go to Bible Study with the ladies!

Location and Parking Information:
Location: This Center is located on the corner of Michigan and LaSalle Streets. The building is 10 stories high, so it towers in comparison to neighboring buildings.
Parking: Street parking is available directly in front of the Center on both sides of Michigan Street; Wheeler owns the gated parking lot across the street at the southwest corner of Michigan and LaSalle Streets; For those volunteering after 4PM (Monday through Friday), we may have spots available inside our small, gated lot attached to the Center on the north side of Michigan Street. If you park in the gated lot, you may have to buzz in at the gate so they can open it.
Sign-In: Enter the Center through the main doors, located on the east side of the building under the awning. Sign-in at the Front Desk directly inside the building. Let them know how you are serving and they will direct you from there. It is very important all volunteers sign in and out.
