At Wabash Center, we care for our community as a whole. Our focus historically has been on those with disabilities and special needs, but our passion for service does not stop there. There will always be those within the community who struggle with homelessness, substance abuse and issues surrounding proper legal representation.
Our responsibility is to lift up those who are hurting and in need within our community. We may not always be the final stop for a given situation, but we will direct individuals to the resources they require and strive to assist them along the way.
Tippecanoe and Montgomery County Adult Guardianship Services
The focus of guardianship is to represent and support incapacitated adults and help ensure they have access to appropriate social services, healthcare, and legal representation, often at the end of their life. Wabash Center recruits and trains volunteer guardians to then assist those in need.
These guardians provide counseling and help individuals in obtaining pro-bono legal representation when necessary. Wabash Center works closely with local court systems to identify those in need and ensure that they have access to necessary and available resources.

Wabash Center aids in directing homeless individuals to available resources – allowing them to access housing and other necessities. Here, we provide comprehensive case management services to people struggling with chronic homelessness and chronic substance abuse.
Our staff members help negotiate lease or rental agreements on behalf of the individual based on their income and level of need. In 2016, 28 individuals were successfully connected to supportive services. We intend on building off that achievement. Our objective is simple but powerful: to help those without homes get back on their feet and pursue independent lives once again.
