In 2004, Beauty for Ashes Transitional Home opened its doors to women (with and without children) in crisis, in Madison County, Indiana.  In January 2018, Beauty for Ashes merged with Muncie Mission and now continues to do their work, as a ministry provided by Muncie Mission.

Muncie Mission works to provide a safe space for women who are working to overcome homelessness and give them the support they need to change their lives. We offer stability, hope and restoration to women and their children, through a Christ-centered structure that focuses on personal and spiritual growth. This 6-18 month program embraces women who desire to change their lives and empowers them to work toward a positive future.

As we move forward into the future please watch for news of growth and expansion of this vital service to women and their children.


Following acceptance into the women’s transitional living program, a woman will find herself in a safe and stable living environment. A case manager will partner with her to help formulate a plan to move forward into her new positive future. Areas covered in individual and group sessions include emotional management, spiritual formation and life skills classes. Other services provided, as needed, are referrals to medical, professional, legal and housing resources within the local community.

If you meet the following criteria and would like to apply to our program, please fill out the application. Meeting the criteria does not guarantee placement in the program. It is, however, an initial indicator that you may be a good fit for the Beauty for Ashes Program.
