Listening to the community.

Porter-Starke Services is committed to providing high-quality services and enhancing the quality of life in our community. One way we do this is joining new initiatives that offer innovative ways of providing services, coordinating with local service-minded groups, and increasing mental health awareness. We support new research and programs that align with our values of creativity and innovation towards quality improvement.

CARE Project

The CARE Project is an initiative recently launched by the Indiana Counseling Association in partnership with Porter-Starke Services to interest middle school, high school, and undergraduate students in scientific research about mental health issues and to promote mental health awareness among students and the community.

No Place Like Home

No Place Like Home is a Plan to End Homelessness for Porter County. This plan was developed by local service providers, shelter and housing providers, community members, faith-based organizations, and funders to address the increase in the number of people experiencing homelessness locally.

No Place Like Home plays a foundation for retooling the homeless service system to most effectively prevent homelessness and to rapidly re-house people experiencing homelessness. The 10-year vision is that all residents will have access to a safe, affordable home in Porter County, including resources and support services necessary to prevent and end homelessness.

Children's Mental Health Initiative

The Children's Mental Health Initiative proposes a clear process for providing access to mental health services for children and youth with serious emotional problems. This is a new opportunity for families to access services through a partnership between the Department of Child Services and the Division of Mental Health and Addiction.

Porter-Starke Services is the access site for services for Porter and Starke counties, helping to combine the formal supports that a qualifying child needs with the natural supports he or she already has in the community.
