History (Taken from The Center for Women’s Ministries, Inc.) 

The Center for Women’s Ministries, Inc., was founded in Bloomington, Indiana, in 1989. It grew from the Spirit-led conviction that although there are many social service agencies available, the element lacking in emotional healing is a spiritual emphasis.

The Center for Women’s Ministries, Inc., is a free, non-denominational ministry for women promoting emotional and spiritual healing. Our primary purpose is crisis intervention with a spiritual emphasis. The ministry is designed to create an environment where non-judgmental listening, sharing, encouragement and prayer support can take place. We network with Prison Fellowship Ministries, crisis pregnancy centers, American Association of Christian Counselors, and other faith-based organizations.

Facilities are staffed by crisis volunteers and are open primarily weekdays. They offer individual counseling sessions with paraprofessionals, support groups related to the community’s specific needs, Bible studies and prayer groups. Centers offer such facilities as counseling rooms, lounge, lending library and meditation chapel. Training sessions, seminars and retreats are conducted for volunteers’ growth.

Possible Areas of Ministry

Abuse, childlessness, co-dependency, death, depression, divorce, eating disorders, fears and phobias, jail, illness and disability, parenting, pregnancy, promiscuity, relationships, self-esteem, sexuality, singleness, spirituality, suicide, woundedness from childhood.

What We Are

We are a safe place for hurting women to come in order to receive non-judgmental listening, comfort, encouragement and support. We are here to point women to Jesus Christ, and to encourage them to draw closer to God through Christ.

We are a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation, tax-exempt.

What We Are Not

We are not professional therapists. We recognize that some women need the help of someone more extensively trained than we are. In these situations, we refer from an approved list of professionals.

Though we are part of the universal church body, we are not a church. We want to provide a welcome atmosphere for hurting women, whatever their circumstances and whatever their church affiliation. We encourage church attendance and provide suggestions that may meet their expectations.  Here is our Statement of Faith.
