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.
