Refuge and rest for survivors of sexual exploitation in Indianapolis

What We Believe

The Butterfly House is ruled by love, compassion, belonging, freedom, and relationship.

The Butterfly House Values

We provide a place for women to belong without exception and without discrimination. We believe we are “invited to turn toward love and away from fear, because we know who we are, because we belong.” In a place of belonging, we are safe to discover our true identity and become in wholeness all we were created to be.
We believe individual growth is increased exponentially in healthy one-on-one relationships and in community in which you’re free to be transparent and vulnerable. Our mission is lived out relationally in everything we do. We begin first with our relationship to God and each other, and invite others into healthy relationships in practical, spiritual, and emotional ways. We believe two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed (Ecclesiastes 4:9).
We believe true freedom is found in Jesus. Each opportunity to serve in practical ways at The Dream House is a chance to share the truth, which sets people free. We believe God longs for His children to know Him and to experience extraordinary freedom; from darkness, from fear, from the past, and from trauma. We know if Jesus sets us free, we are truly free (John 8:36).
We believe healing begins with compassion. Everyone who walks through our doors is deserving of compassion, which is displayed daily in faithful love, kindness, mercy, and forgiveness. Compassion does not repay unfavorable actions with anger, but with love and understanding. It leans in and listens, seeking to know and be known, and honors others without judgement.
We love and are able to love because God loved us first, and we know we cannot be separated from His love. Love is lived out at The Dream House in the form of God’s agape love; a love without agenda, that expects nothing in return, does not seek reciprocation, and is unconditional. It is spoken in word and in deed. It heals and transforms. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance (1 Corinthians 13:7).
