Angel's Wings - Who we are . . .
Case Management Program
In November, 2010, we began taking volunteer case managers into the Indiana Women's Prison to provide case management services to the pregnant or recently-delivered incarcerated mothers. Since it's inception, the Case Management Program has worked with approximately 65 offenders, representing 65 different families!! We serve as advocates on the outside for these families by providing re-entry assistance and referral information to help them be a success upon their release. We want to reduce the recidivism (rate of return to prison) of these Moms, especially for the children's sake!
Grant from the Women's Fund of Central Indiana
In October, 2010, Angel's Wings received a grant to serve as the fiscal agent for a $25K grant from the Women's Fund of Central Indiana. This grant was to be used for educational programs and supplies for the women and infants involved in the Wee Ones Nursery and Family Preservation Program at the Indiana Women's Prison. We are nearing the end of this grant and currently seeking additional funding for those supplies. This was a one-year grant and has provided supplies and equipment for the infants who are able to live with their mothers inside the prison. It will also provide some child development training for the new mothers. This is an awesome opportunity and we are happy to help! Since Angel's Wings is 100% volunteer-driven, this grant will be used to support programs at IWP!
If you'd like to make a donation of infant supplies for the WON, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. The biggest needs are formula, diapers, and hygiene-type supplies.
Kelli's Kloset - In-Prison Baby Showers
Through our program Kelli's Kloset, Angel's Wings volunteers have been conducting in-prison baby showers at the Indiana Women's Prison since January, 2005. We have reached over 525 families through this program, providing much-needed infant supplies and bonding time!
Through a partnership with the Community Research Center at the University of Indianapolis, Dr. Kevin Whiteacre is leading several research projects. He and his students are studying issues related to recidivism (rate of return) of the offenders who have participated in the prison's Wee Ones Nursery, Family Preservation Program, and Angel's Wings programs. This is an exciting partnership and we are hoping to gain some valuable data!!

Temporary Housing for Infants
The Advisory Board & volunteers of Angel’s Wings are always looking at new and exciting ways to assist pregnant and recently-delivered mothers who are incarcerated. One need we have been able to fulfill is providing temporary placement for new baby while mother is incarcerated. For those mothers who qualify for our program, it is an awesome way we can help keep these families together. There have been several families assisted by this program over the past four years.
