About Us

The Chris Center, Inc. offers an innovative approach to teen wellness by connecting adolescents to nature and providing opportunities for human-animal interaction. We recognize that many teenagers in Central Indiana are feeling a sense of increased isolation and disconnect from others. They are searching for belonging and community and need a place where there is acceptance and joy.

The Chris Center strives to be part of the solution and to provide respite from the fast-paced, high-pressure world. Our programs are based on research demonstrating the health and wellness benefits of interacting with animals and nature. These benefits include improved self-esteem and mood, increased social interaction, and stress reduction, to name a few.
