INDIANAPOLIS, IN—some say that women experiencing poverty and homelessness can be saved by a job, a home, or an education.  Heart Changes Ministries believes that without heart changea relationship with God and inward devotion to Christall forms of physical support the community or government might provide will yield only temporary improvements or advancements in the lives of the poor and needy.

Heart Change comes alongside mothers in crisis to encourage them to be the women that God created them to be.  Heart Change Ministries is a response to the call of God to “make disciples.”  (Matthew 28:19-20).  Through Mother’s University, social enterprise & the gift of work, and covenant community, marginalized women of Indianapolis learn the gospel of grace and are equipped to live as God intended; as women, mothers, and members of their communities.
