Affordable Housing Development
Through the Area IV Development Corporation, community economic development and affordable housing projects are provided that benefit low to moderate income persons, older adults (age 55 +), physically and mentally disabled persons, homeless persons and special needs populations who reside in mid-northwestern Indiana. We are committed to seek out and provide housing that improves the local economy and overall quality of life for our target populations.
Care Coordination Across Generations
Sara Moore, Area IV’s Care Coordinator Across Generations, is available to help you through the sometimes overwhelming process of finding and coordinating resources for the aging person.
Chronic Disease Self Management Program
The Chronic Disease Self-Management Program (CDSMP) was developed by scholars and physicians at Stanford University’s Patient Education Research Center and Kaiser Permanente in 1996. The program is currently offered in all 50 United States, 19 foreign counties, and is available in 17 languages.
All Community Transportation programs are open to public based on available seating, and are wheelchair accessible. They are all-volunteer public transportation programs and can be used for all kind of personal business as often as needed. They are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. There are even some prescheduled trips!
This is a donation-based program. Your generous donation will go towards the gas costs plus help pay for a new vehicle when it is time to replace the existing one.

Congregate Meal Sites per County
Congregate sites are located at Senior Centers and other community sites in our eight-county area. Theses offer a hot mid-day meal during weekdays to any person over age 60. There is no cost as this is a Title III program, although participants are encouraged to donate what they can. The philosophy is based on the Older Americans Act which intends to improve the nutrition and health of older adults.

Energy Assistance Program
The Energy Assistance Program provides financial assistance to low-income households to maintain utility services during the winter heating season. The assistance is available to households one time during the heating season.
Equipment Loan Program
Wheelchairs, walkers, canes, etc. available for borrowing at no cost to client. Availability is dependent on donations received (donations are accepted).
Family Caregiver Program
Are you providing care and assistance for a spouse, relative, friend or grandchild (or other relative child)? Do you have questions or problems for which you need information? Are you feeling overwhelmed by the responsibilities and wonder if there is help available?
Grandparent/Relatives Raising Children
Grandparents/relatives who are raising children have special issues related to their situation. Area IV offers several programs for educating these parental figures and helping them raise children that are not their own.
Sunshine and Smiles
Sunshine & Smiles is an intergenerational play group. The group, facilitated by a volunteer, allows parents and their typically pre-school age children and nursing home residents to connect and interact. The group meets once a month and benefits all involved. As one resident at Rosewalk Village said, “This is the best day I’ve ever had.” These visits are especially meaningful to those residents whose family members are not able to visit very often. Children who don’t live near their grandparents or great-grandparents also benefit by getting to spend time with an older generation.
