News and Events

Our transporation team is the star of our Spring 2017 newsletter! We also outline our ramp program and news and happenings at our offices. Read it here.

We are launching our 2017 ramp building season with the Chicago UAW/Ford Community Service Ramp Project team. Porter County individuals who need assistance accessing their homes due to mobility issues should call (219) 465-7144.   

We welcome two new SHIP volunteers to the program! Bill Boyle and Brenda Bocek join Ginger Brockwehl, Deborah Brann and Tom Murphy. More on the volunteers!

SHIP volunteers were busy this season! During open enrollment, which ran from Oct. 15 through Dec. 7, the five counselors recorded 197 client contacts and 136 total hours. Help is available year-round by calling (219) 465-7144.  

Support our agency while grabbing a great meal! Eat at Five Guys on U.S. 6 in Portage on Monday Nov. 28 and we will receive 20 percent of purchases and a $1 for every milkshake. See the form here.

Medicare Open Enrollment runs through Dec. 7. Our SHIP volunteers are available to review Medicare plans and help you make an informed decision. To meet with a counselor, call (219) 464-1028 to make an appointment.

In our Fall Newsletter, we spotlight our impact for the year in our annual meeting coverage. We also feature photos and highlights from our celebration of Josephine Purevich's years of service.

Our staff, family and friends recently recognized Josephine Purevich for her years of service to the community. Purevich’s 27-year career was celebrated at a retirement luncheon at the Hebron Senior Center, where she served as director for about 10 years. See our photos and story.

We check in on the RSVP program, celebrate Josephine Purevich's service, share the latest on our ramp program and spotlight our board president, Ethan Lowe, in our spring newsletter.

Campbell Street Café, 4254 Meridian Woods Drive, continues to be not only a place for the community to gather and enjoy a meal, but also a place to pay it forward. The café is owned and operated by Pines Village Retirement Communities, a not-for-profit, so staff members accept tips on behalf of the region’s charitable organizations. PCACS will benefit from all tips collected in May!
