    Phone: (317) 635-9301 24-Hour Crisis Line

    Website: www.stopoverinc.org 

     

    Stopover services are directed towards young people who have run away, who are at risk of running away, or who have been ejected from their homes.
    Stopover provides short-term housing to young people ages 13 to 17. Temporary separation from the family removes youth from the intensity of the crisis. It allows a chance to assess their situation and evaluate alternatives. The environment is one that tells youth that they are important and valued people.
