A letter from our President/CEO:

February 4, 2020

Dear Valued partner,

Northwest Indiana Community Action provides services to the low income, elderly & disabled community and has done so for over fifty-four years. One of the key services we provide is Information and Assistance Services, which connects individuals with various community resources. A part of this service has been answering calls for the 2-1-1 service and effective December 31st we discontinued answering the 2-1-1 calls.

Through our Resource Connections Department, we are pleased to be able to continue to provide information and assistance services. You can assist us by sharing this information and by providing updated agency information that allows us to maintain an updated resource database.

Attached here is our new program data application and our program cards with information on how to reach us.

Thank you for your support and helping meet the needs of your community.
