Come for a tour and help us in our mission to restore hope and rebuild relationships. We welcome the opportunity to show you our 90-acre campus and introduce you to some of our youth and staff. During your visit to Wernle, you’ll experience our warm and welcoming atmosphere. You’ll be able to tour a residential hall, the Lingle Wellness Center, and the new Hawk Center. One of our friendly and knowledgeable development staff will provide a presentation of our 140-year history and our plans for the future. Please email us at or call 765-993-2506. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Board members of Wernle

From its conception, Wernle has been approaching individuals, foundations, and corporations in the communities we serve to raise money to help make up the difference between fees we obtain and our mounting expense to cover the care for our youth and the unique initiatives tailored to those we serve. For one hundred and forty years, we have relied heavily on government support. Due to cuts in state appropriations for troubled youth, Wernle recognizes the need to become less reliant for long-term sustainability. We rely on donors like you to make possible our ongoing programs and services that enable us to undertake important new initiatives. The vital services Wernle provides are made possible by the thoughtful generosity of supporters like you. We sincerely hope you will help us with a gift this year.

We depend on the generosity of people like you, and financial gifts are always needed and appreciated. Throughout the year we run a variety of fund drives and campaigns. We depend on our donors to help us perform our mission and to offer high-quality programs.
