Life Centers Announces New Center in Hamilton County
A new full-time pregnancy center will open in Noblesville this October.
Indianapolis, IN: Today, Life Centers announced that they have signed a lease for new center in Noblesville, Indiana. The address is 305 Sheridan Road, Noblesville, IN 46060.
Life Centers’ Executive Director, Tom Shevlot, says, “We are excited to have a presence back in Hamilton County. Our previous center in Westfield was only part-time, but we know that this new full-time center in Noblesville will serve one of the fastest growing counties in Indiana well. This was an underserved area. Now that this center is full-time, we can help support and provide resources to many young women and families that need our services.” Life Centers’ previous Westfield location closed on June 30, 2017.
Due to the increasing population, Life Centers wanted to have a larger presence in Hamilton County. Hamilton County tops Indiana with an almost 13 percent population increase in the past five years. The new center in Noblesville will be open 5 days a week, in contrast to the previous center that was only open 2 days a week.

Life Centers receives many individual gifts during the year and we are thankful for them all. Every bit helps. Even just a baby bundle (which costs about $60) can make a huge difference. We want to take the time to share the impact of two recent grants that we received.
Kaleo is a group of women locally that have been stirred into action. Their mission is be the hands and feet of the Gospel. They recently presented us with a $10,000 grant to help us expand our post-abortive ministry soar (spiritually oriented abortion recovery). This grant will be used to promote the ministry throughout Greater Indianapolis, as well as expand the number of locations and participants. It will help facilitate more healing and freedom for those who have been wounded by abortion.
Grace Church has been a force in the community and faithful partner of Life Centers for years. Life Centers was once again the recipient of a generous grant. We received a $20,000 grant for the relocation of the Hamilton County center and for language assistance with non-English speaking clients. Because our landlord had put the Westfield location up for sale and notified us to vacate, we began looking for new location. We have a new location that has higher visibility and will allow us to be open full-time. The expenses related to moving (including build out, signage, furniture, first year’s lease, utilities and staffing) total around $100,000 and with Grace’s help and leadership, we are over 80% there.
The other part of Grace’s grant helps us meet the growing difficulties of serving clients that do not speak English. The money will be used for technology that will help us connect clients to volunteers that can interpret real-time at all of our centers.
Please know two things: First, we appreciate every gift that we receive and wish that we could publically thank each of you that has given to save babies and transform lives. Secondly, that we will use every dollar to thoughtfully and prayfully serve more and more women in Central Indiana facing pregnancy decisions.
