Open Arms is a compassionate expression of the churches in Valparaiso, Indiana, working to ensure that women have a safe place to sleep at night. Having started in 2011 as a PADS-style program with women sleeping in churches, we now partner more closely with Dayspring Women's Center to provide overnight emergency shelter in apartments. 

If you or a woman you know is in need of shelter, please contact Dayspring Women's Center at 219-510-5432. They are open Monday-Friday, 7:30 am - 5:00 pm. They provide all sorts of supportive day services for women who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.

Thank you for caring for your neighbors in their time of need!
