St. Joseph's Carmelite Home in East Chicago, Indiana Opens Our Hearts and Homes to Children in Crisis From Birth to Age 18

Since giving refuge to one frightened child nearly 100 years ago, the Carmelite sisters have, literally, opened their hearts and homes to children in crisis. Today, Carmelite Home is known for being one of the best residential child care facilities in the State of Indiana. That means our children are successfully integrated back into the community. It’s a triumph everyone should celebrate.

Carmelite Home

Located in a quiet residential neighborhood, Carmelite's grounds and buildings are clean and inviting. Trained caregivers, private and dorm-style bedrooms, dining areas, outdoor and indoor play spaces, full-size gymnasium, indoor swimming pool, and chapel ensure that the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of children from birth to age 18 are met.

A nonprofit for family and child services, we offer comprehensive care with a residential treatment center and emergency shelter—so no child will be homeless. We work diligently to reunite children with their families.
