Methodist Hospitals Foundation donated a one year’s supply of daily living necessities to support the Northwest Indiana Salvation Army’s Adult Rehabilitation Center in Gary. The supplies included razors, shaving gel, lotion, deodorant, toothbrush and paste, slippers, combs, soap and shampoo.
"Our contribution to the Northwest Indiana Salvation Army’s Adult Rehabilitation Center not only provides supplies for those served by the organization, but underscores our respect for the fine work that is carried out by the staff as they continue working to improve the lives of many. It is our privilege to support them again this year,” said Judy Lindsey, executive director of the Methodist Hospitals Foundation.
The Salvation Army’s Northwest Indiana Adult Rehabilitation Center is a drug and alcohol rehabilitation program that provides spiritual, social and emotional assistance for men who have lost the ability to cope with their problems and provide for themselves. The facility, administered by Bill and Diane Price, offers residential housing and group and individual counseling as well as work therapy for program participants. The physical and spiritual care that program participants receive prepares them to re-enter society and return to gainful employment. Many of those who have been rehabilitated are reunited with their families and resume a normal life. A long-term commitment of at least six months is required so patterns of poor decision-making can be broken and replaced with positive life choices that will help them become productive citizens of the community. The ARC program is free to men in the Eastern Illinois and Northwest Indiana region.
