Our Beginning

CWM History

The Center for Women’s Ministries, Inc. was founded in Bloomington, Indiana, in 1989.  It grew from the Spirit-led conviction that although there are many social service agencies available, the element lacking in emotional healing is a spiritual emphasis.

The Center for Women’s Ministries, Inc. is a free, non-denominational ministry for women promoting emotional and spiritual healing.  Our primary purpose is crisis intervention with a spiritual emphasis.  The ministry is designed to create an environment where non-judgmental listening, sharing, encouragement and prayer support can take place.  Center for Women’s Ministries networks with pregnancy care centers, American Association of Christian Counselors and other faith-based organizations.

Facilities are staffed by trained volunteers and are open primarily weekdays.  They offer individual peer counseling sessions with paraprofessionals, support groups related to the community’s specific needs, Bible studies and prayer groups.  Centers offer such facilities as counseling rooms, lounge, lending library and meditation chapel.  Training sessions, seminars and retreats are conducted for volunteers’ growth.

Scriptural Directive
The spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed and qualified me to bring good news to the afflicted. He has sent me to bind up and heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the physical and spiritual captives and release from darkness for the prisoners…. To grant consolation and joy to those who grieve in Zion. Giving them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and the garment of praise instead of despair.
Isaiah 61:1, 3
