THE NEED

Kokomo resides in Howard County, Indiana - the top ranking county for unemployment in the state. 6.4% of county residents were unemployed as of December 2023.

  • 11.9% poverty rate
  • 16.5% poverty rate for children under 18

Our homeless shelters have been at max capacity recently. The need for safe shelters, warm meals, and a caring community have grown.

“We have people now who don’t know how to feed their family who have not had that thought for a very long time. That’s different than the last recession.”

-American Psychiatric Association, President Jeffrey Geller
