As we all adjust to life under these new circumstances with a global pandemic, it's important that we stay informed and work together. With that in mind, the following are links to helpful information regarding food, your health, and financial security. 

Unemployment & Medicaid Benefits

Food & Health

  • If you or your family are in need of a food bank, can help you find one in your zip code. 


Staying Safe

  • As people shelter in place, unfortunately for many that means potentially being stuck in an abusive situation. Domestic violence shelters in our community include Stepping Stone in Michigan City, St. Jude’s in Crown Point, and Caring Place in Valparaiso. Additionally, fleeing domestic violence situations is one of the top causes of homelessness; the Sojourner Truth House in Gary provides emergency shelter for homeless and at-risk women and children.
