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 jama_smith@usc.salvationarmy.org or 260-744-2311.

AUGUST CASE: MaKenzie

Makenzie is currently in the NICU after a difficult incubation and birth.

She is struggling after a placental infection and expects to be in the NICU for at least the upcoming weeks.

TO GET INVOLVED THROUGHOUT THE YEAR:

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.

TO BE CONSIDERED FOR THE PROGRAM:

 If you have or know of a NICU or child in need that meets our medical requirements, please email Jama_Smith@usc.salvationarmy.org
