Our Mission



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 IN are struggling with their mental and emotional well-being, and we strive to be part of the solution. Our programs are based on research demonstrating the health and wellness benefits of interacting with animals and participating in farming activities. These benefits include improved self-esteem and mood, increased social interaction, and decreased symptoms of anxiety and depression. To learn more about the Chris Center's programs click below.
