As we mentioned in a recent Facebook post, this year we are celebrating 20 years of work helping the homeless in La Porte County.
In that time, we have grown from a volunteer-led program operating out of church basements to a fully-established nonprofit organization run by trained staff with a permanent location.
All of our progress is thanks to YOU!
ICPADS was, is, and will always be a community project, fueled by the generosity of La Porte county citizens who want to help the homeless in our area.
For this reason, we are asking you to join us for our 2021 Holiday Giving Campaign, which will run through the end of December.

Why Are We Running a Holiday Giving Campaign?
The ICPADS 2021 Holiday Giving Campaign is aimed at raising monetary funds for our operation throughout the new year.
Your donation is tax deductible and will help us cover new expenses we have incurred now that we have a permanent location, including heating and other utilities, trained staff, food, and supplies.
- Although we started out as a winter-only shelter, we now run year round.
- Every night we offer guests a safe place to sleep and a warm meal at our permanent location on 8th Street in Michigan City. We also provide breakfast in the morning.
- Our trained staff oversee guests and connect them with resources they need to address the issues that are causing their homelessness and help them secure their own housing.
- Although we started out as a men’s-only shelter, we now offer services to men, women and children.
In the past 12 months, we have had the pleasure of serving 177 guests!
The need for our services in La Porte County is real and ongoing, which is why we are asking for your support during our 2021 Holiday Giving Campaign.
Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the LORD and he will repay him for his deed.
