Who We Are:

inconnectlogoNorthwest Community Action Corporation (NWICA), a member of the INconnect Alliance and community-minded not-for-profit, is the largest combined Area Agency on Aging and Community Action Agency in Indiana. We help to eliminate barriers to independence through a variety of services and advanced regional knowledge.


Our families live and work in the neighborhoods we serve and we envision communities that offer safe and affordable housing, various living wage jobs, and access to opportunities for families and individuals including caregivers, those with disabilities, aging adults, infants and young children.
