NICU Assistance Program 

Baby Charlotte in the NICU


Charlotte Ministries is a NICU Assistance program, inspired by a staff member’s struggle with having a baby in the neonatal intensive care unit.

Evaluated on a case-by-case basis, The Salvation Army provides care packages as well as financial assistance for families with a child currently in an Allen County NICU (and in special cases, children with cancer or other medical issues.) Assistance is provided upon demonstration of need and based upon donations received.

For more information, please contact Jama Smith at or 260-744-2311.



Charlotte Ministries would like to introduce you to its newest case: Baby Takoda.
Takoda was born premature and is currently in the NICU (is expected to be there until January.)

He also has an older brother, Riley. We are accepting donations for this family from now till December 12th. 

Donations for Baby Takoda can be dropped at 2901 North Clinton, Fort Wayne Mon-Fri from 8:30-4:30 until August 29, 2014 



We are constantly in need of donations for Charlotte Ministries! We are currently accepting:

  • Gently used and new infant clothing
  • Diapers
  • Wipes
  • Grocery Gift Cards
  • Restaurant Gift Cards (NICU families often have to grab food on the go or take food back to the hospital.)
  • Gas Cards (Many of our families drive to and from the NICU several times daily and gas costs alone can be staggering.)
  • New Baby Hygiene Items

Donations can be delivered to the reception desk at 2901 North Clinton, Fort Wayne, MON-FRI 8:30 am -4:30 pm.
