Blessings for the Peterson Family

One of the greatest blessings was The Salvation Army’s Charlotte Ministries delivery. It served as a reminder that I was not alone, and there were people thinking and praying for my family; people we had never met. My heart is so full when they filled the trunk of my car with so many things for our family! My kitchen is stocked, diapers are awaiting our girl, gift cards to grab food at local restaurants on the drive to and from the hospital were in an envelope, and even my son's morning was made by a puppet!


Charlotte Ministries is a NICU Assistance program, inspired by a staff member’s struggle with having a baby in the neonatal intensive care unit.

Evaluated on a case-by-case basis, The Salvation Army provides care packages as well as financial assistance for families with a child currently in an
Allen County NICU.           

 Assistance is provided upon demonstration of need and
based upon donations received.



We are constantly in need of donations for Charlotte Ministries! We are currently accepting:

New infant clothing



Grocery Gift Cards

Restaurant Gift Cards
(NICU families often have to grab food on the go or take food back to the hospital.)

Gas Cards
(Many of our families drive to and from the NICU several times daily and gas costs alone can be staggering.)

New Baby Hygiene Items


Donations can be delivered to the reception desk at
2901 North Clinton, Fort Wayne,  
MON-FRI 8:30 am -4:30 pm
