A new, bigger home for Susie’s Place in Terre Haute is coming

Susie’s Place is expanding in Terre Haute with your help and a $35,000 matching grant

Over 2,000 kids served since 2017 — and more to come at a new, bigger home

Susie’s Place has served 2,000 kids of reported abuse, neglect, and assault since opening in 2017. 

With your support and a $35,000 matching grant from the Wabash Valley Community Foundation, we can nurture and protect the next 2,000 in a new, bigger home.

Hurry! This matching opportunity ends May 16. 

The new location will open July 1.

It’s more than space — it’s a safe, comfortable place for the investigation of crimes against kids

Double the space means consistent, comfortable, and confidential space up to 4,000 square feet for the investigation of crimes against children.

A revitalized corner means better security systems, private entrances, pedestrian safety, streetscaping, and more for visitors and Terre Haute residents.

A new locations brings advancements for child victims

  • Private child-friendly waiting areas for families in crisis to feel safe and comfortable.
  • On-site, well-lit parking to ensure safe entry into the center for teams and families that arrive after dark.
  • Potential growth for co-located medical exams so that families will not have to travel hours away for services.
  • On-site clothing and supply closet for children and caregivers needing basic comforts.
  • ADA-compliant private bathrooms ensure all children are safe, comfortable, and heard.

We’re excited about all the possibilities of our new Center. Things like a child-sized door into forensic interview rooms​, new murals, and more make Susie’s Place a safe, nurturing place for investigating crimes against children. But we can’t do it without your help.

Our future home at 103 S 3rd Street in Terre Haute will fully revitalize one of the busiest, most-visible corners in town.

Only donations can make this project happen

Nearly everything we do at Susie’s Place is provided at no cost to families. As a nonprofit organization, we rely on donations and public and private grants. But none of our public grants will cover construction costs like this.

That’s why we need your help to make this happen. Thanks to a gracious offer by the Wabash Valley Community Foundation, each dollar you donate will double its impact thanks to a matching grant up to $35,000 until May 16, 2023.

Donations above $250 will be recorded in various ways through the Center

You can take a 360º tour inside our future home, as it appeared in January 2023. These new spaces, offices, and rooms will be transformed into comfortable new spaces. The proposed uses are noted in the room list.
