Peak Community Services

Phone: (574) 946-6188

1104 South U.S.-35
Winamac, Indiana 46996

Peak Community Services (PCS) provides opportunities for individuals to develop life skills that enable them to live as independently as possible and to become contributing members of the community.

In 1955, three women in Pulaski County started a program to provide their special-needs children the opportunity to learn and develop skills. The 18th such program in Indiana was quite progressive for a rural community. The first class, held in the basement of the First Christian Church in Winamac, had 16 students; by 1965, 88 children from Jasper, Starke, Fulton, and Pulaski Counties were attending what had come to be known as the ‘Aurora School’, now located in the former Riley School. Many of the early students were becoming adults by this time, so a Habilitation Center was started at 112 West Main Street for these adults to learn job skills.

In 1988, the Pulaski County agency contracted with Woodlawn Center, in Logansport, for administrative services, and eventually, the two agencies merged to become PCS, which now has two facilities, one in Logansport and one in Winamac, and six group homes, two in Winamac and four in Logansport.

CASA of Pulaski County

Sara Kroft, Pulaski County Coordinator

Phone: (574) 225-2227

Winamac, Indiana 46996

The Court-Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) Program speaks up for children who have been abused or neglected by empowering our community to volunteer as advocates for them in the court system. A CASA volunteer is a court-appointed, trained, and committed adult who ensures that each child’s individual needs remain a priority in an over-burdened child welfare system. He or she gets to know the child while also gathering information from the child’s family, teachers, doctors, caregivers, and anyone else involved in the child’s life in order to make independent and informed recommendations to help the judge decide what is best for the child.

Office hours: Mon.-Wed., 9:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. ET
