Charity Partner

Children’s Bureau, Inc. is a private nonprofit that has served children and families since 1851 and we’re here because many families need help to overcome the challenges that sometimes lead to unhealthy behaviors and threaten a child’s well-being.

We offer an array of human services to Indiana children and families. Guided by our vision of a healthy family for every child, highly-trained case managers identify and address issues that tear families apart. They do so in different ways:

  • Prevent – Empower families with professional support and community resources to eliminate issues that lead to entry into the child welfare system.
  • Intervene – Work with families who find themselves in the “system” to accomplish the required goals to keep their children.
  • Protect – Recruit and strengthen foster and adoptive homes.
  • Support – Mentor older youth transitioning from foster care to independent living.

Children’s Bureau is built on the belief that giving kids the chance to succeed creates stronger communities.  We typically serve more than 40,000 children in over 20,000 families each year.  Whether you share your time, expertise or finances, your support is vital.  Will you join us in our mission?

What is Children's Bureau

In case you missed it at our Annual Celebration, here is the video that was unveiled. We hope you will share it with a friend, colleague, neighbor, etc. Most importantly, share it with someone that could benefit from Children's Bureau services.

Builder Profile

Homes by Design
Brad Bowman

Brad Bowman decided that he wanted to create truly custom homes in Central Indiana and put the power of design into the hands of the homeowner. In 1999, Homes by Design was born. Utilizing over 40 years of combined home building experience, Brad and his staff have the expertise to make the home that you have always dreamed of… a reality.

We use some of the best people in the industry to ensure that the latest building techniques are incorporated, yet retain that “Old World Craftsmanship”. It comes down to the details. Our rich finishes and attention to the smallest of details, ensures that your home is built with a level of quality usually reserved for fine furniture.

Just because “it’s the way it’s always been done”, doesn’t mean that we will not look for a better technique or material. We are constantly searching for new ways to make your home a better and safer place to live. It’s our goal to continually advance the art of home building to new levels.

We want to be a true partner in the creation of your new home. From the design to the final walk-through and beyond, we will stand by your side.

Whetstone and Associates
Deanna Whetstone

Upon receiving her Bachelor’s degree in Interior Design from Ball State, Deanna Whetstone returned to the Indianapolis area and launched Whetstone & Associates in 1996. Tucked in to a store front in the small town of Brownsburg, the design firm offers space for clients to explore product samples while also allowing ample space for a showroom filled with accessories.

With over twenty years of diverse experience to draw from, Deanna’s professional accomplishments are many. A brief overview includes multiple projects with the Decorators’ Show House, Home-A-Rama, Dream Home, and most recently named a regional winner in “Design for a Difference”, an International Design Guild contest. Deanna’s focus remains largely in residential projects in some of Indianapolis’ most prestigious neighborhoods. While clients generally seek her out for new construction design, updating and transformation projects of existing and historical properties are also gaining favor.

Deanna takes a client driven approach to interior design. When first meeting with a client, she seeks to learn their needs in addition to their vision of the space. “I want the space to be inspired” explains Deanna. With a goal of every project being unique, she interprets the grand dreams of her clients and turns them in to a reality. These spaces evolve to be a well-designed part of the home, while also serving as a reflection of the residents.

Today the Whetstone & Associates client base reaches across the country. As clients purchase vacation homes or eventually relocate for work, they continue to turn to the firm to design their personal spaces. The continued referrals and repeat business from clients serves as a testament to Deanna’s ability to offer creative solutions, a current design vision and the ability to work within space parameters.
