Catholic Charities has limited funding to assist individuals with small, basic purchases when they find themselves without available cash due to an emergency or unexpected expense. Catholic Charities partners with a variety of agencies by using the voucher system to supply basic needs such as rent, mortage, or part of a utility bill. Persons who wish to apply for assistance may do so by making an appointment with a member of the Outreach staff. Call 812-423-5456 on Mondays at 8:30 a.m.
Gas vouchers are provided on a limited basis to assist families with children who need treatment at distant medical facilities. Call 812-423-5456 for more information.
