Our major accomplishments!

Since 2012 we have accomplished much because of our friends and supporters!

Here is some of our proud moments

Michiana Five helped to bring to Nappanee, Indiana it’s first Free Community meal program on January 9th 2014 serving over 100 people twice a week from 5-6pm every week on Mondays and Thursdays and still serving today

Michiana Five developed awareness of teen homelessness in Elkhart county and launched public meetings in July 2015 to bring awareness for the need of a youth shelter for homeless teens and runaways. Met with success, the very first teen shelter opened on April 4th 2016, and the beginning of a Safe Place for teens for years to come thanks to Bashor Children’s Home in Goshen, Indiana

Michiana Five assisted the mayor of Elkhart, Indiana Tim Neese in the successful closing of a illegal tent city with over 25 homeless in the encampment in August 2016 with each person through a group effort led to each person finding housing before their last day of eviction

Michiana Five in September 2016 established in downtown South bend, Indiana under the main street bridge a tent city to bring awareness to the entire community that indeed there was a homeless problem with over 30 tents lined on both sides under the bridge. This led to many news stories (15+) and even regional news coverage  that brought about several working groups tasked with ending homelessness,  one of these groups was the mayors working group

In April 2017 we launched the Mother Goose diaper program to assist any mothers with a package of diapers and wipes to aid in the high cost of diapers for struggling mothers and families which has helped many
