About Community Advocates of Northern Indiana

     At Community Advocates, your overall health is at the core of our mission. Every day, we’re focused on ensuring the reduction and elimination of health disparities among residents in Lake and Porter Counties. The rates of diseases like heart attacks, diabetes, and cancer are disproportionately higher among minority residents. We want all residents to be healthy. We work on achieving that goal through advocacy; education and awareness initiatives; promoting public policy, systems change and improving access to quality care for everyone.

Our Mission

 We won’t stop pursuing our mission until we have achieved health parity among all residents in Lake and Porter counties. We pursue our vision by engaging and empowering the community, documenting their needs, and keeping informed on the leading minority health issues. We collaborate with partners and community stakeholders, advocate for access to health care and promote the availability of cultural and linguistic materials.

Advocates are helpers.  They are called called to come alongside to offer a variety of different supports, strength, or counsel.
