Beacon of Hope Crisis Center Relocates to Larger Office
Indianapolis, IN – Beacon of Hope Center for Women, Inc. (dba) Beacon of Hope Crisis Center (BOH) recently announced plans to move its corporate office to Perry Township in Indianapolis, IN in January of 2017. The agency serves individuals Statewide with primary numbers of service in Marion, Johnson and Hamilton counties; this new office will be more centrally located to all those that the agency serves.
For BOH, a crisis center serving victims of domestic violence and sexual assault, the new office space means improved client service, new amenities for employees and room for growth.
BOH will now occupy the middle section of a multi-tenant office building located in Indianapolis’ Perry Township. “The new floor plan will provide greater efficiency in how we serve clients. As we started to outgrow our current office, it became increasingly difficult to serve clients comfortably and efficiently in the building. We are now able to better serve clients with an appropriate waiting space, room for counseling and meeting space options to adequately spread out and accomplish all necessary for our clients within the new building. We expect this to improve internal and external communication, and most importantly our speed in responding to clients,” said Sandra Ziebold, Chief Executive Officer.
“We were fortunate to find such a nice space in the area where our data shows that we are best suited to be for those we serve. We wanted to limit the impact that relocation could have on our clients and our employees. I don’t think we could have found a better location for our team. Our new location and enhanced operational efficiencies will help us continue to grow and evolve to keep pace with our client’s needs, allowing us to provide exceptional value and superior service along the way,” said Jackie Bowman Ponder, President Board of Director’s.
Remodeling construction of the new space is slated to be complete by the first of January. BOH plans to move early to mid-January, at which time BOH’s new address will be:
6920 S. East Street
Indianapolis, IN 46227
All BOH phone numbers and fax numbers will remain the same.

Our Criminal Justice Program consists of partnerships with the police departments of Southport, Lawrence, Beech Grove, and Speedway police departments. Beacon of Hope victim advocates work with law enforcement to follow up on purple sheet cases and when needed will arrive in partnership ready to assist victims during domestic violence calls. Our advocates also provide emotional advocacy and assistance to those in crisis from sexual assault. The advocates provide a lot of information on victimization, crime prevention, safety planning and information on the criminal justice process and on the legal rights and protections of victims. This program is breaking the cycle of abuse and educates victims about all of the resources available to assist them with leaving the situation and achieving freedom from the grip of domestic violence.
