Care Center

Caring for the Community

Please note we will be closed on Monday, September 7 for Labor Day.

We want to care for you and protect you as much as we can. With the reality of the COVID-19 outbreak, our work in the Care Center has become more important than ever, but simultaneously, without adaptations to how we operate, the health and safety of those we serve can become compromised. For the foreseeable future, the Care Center will close all services except the Choice Pantry. With the building closed to the public, we will move to an online ordering process. See details below. Thank you again for your patience and for helping us keep the Grace Care Center open to help everyone we can.

Donate

This is our time to step up and be the church. There are thousands of individuals and families across central Indiana that need our help. Many are now out of work and facing food shortages, but you can love your neighbor by donating items and/or giving to those in need.

Relief Packet Program (Financial Assistance)

If you find yourself needing more assistance than the choice food pantry, we  are offering a Relief Packet Program. This is an interest-free, no fee loan program to help families with rent, utilities or car repairs. Payments are made in small weekly sums. We'll review your financial assistance and determine if the entire amount is paid back, you pay half or there are no payments. Complete this packet to be considered. Please note that this program is ONLY offered to those in our service area.
