two elderly women seatedOur friends at Joy’s House, located at 2028 Broad Ripple Avenue, have launched a critical fundraising campaign and they need your help!

Joy’s House is a remarkable not-for-profit organization that serves adults living with life-altering diagnoses and their families by providing adult day care and caregiver services  designed to provide social and some health basics for adults who need supervised care in a safe place outside the home during the day.

For the past two decades, Joy’s House has been a home away from home for folks who need a little special attention. But that care comes at a cost, and that price tag is getting high with the latest decrease in donations and new cuts to Medicaid. Without an increase in funding, the non-profit operation could be closed by the end of the next year.

While the future doesn’t look so bright right now, founder Tina McIntosh and the staff at Joy’s House are not giving up. They are fighting and fundraising and looking for any opportunity to continue to serve the people who need them most.

Donations can be made online at, via phone at 317-254-0828 or by mail to Joy’s House, 2028 East Broad Ripple Avenue, Indianapolis, IN 46220. See their facebook page for upcoming events.
