Trinity Life Ministry

Trinity Life Ministry is a redemptive community that gives hope to drug addicts. This is done by transforming men and reconciling their families through the power of Jesus Christ.

Trinity offers a 12-month residential program for adult men and operates two thrift stores. One store is based in Lafayette and the other in Crawfordsville. These stores help support the residential program.

United Way funds in Montgomery County are used to support family ministry in any way they need.


The Crawfordsville Adult Resource Academy is an adult education program designed to help adults improve their basic skills. CARA offers high school equivalency diploma preparation, academic remediation, career paths and certifications, and language reinforcement for non-English speakers.

United Way Montgomery County donations are used in many ways to help teachers and students achieve their goals. These funds help cover the costs of high school equivalency exams and help teachers purchase a research-based curriculum that is relevant and diverse. At CARA, students with learning disabilities can be tested by a school psychologist and receive accommodation if necessary. Resources such as educational software, testing materials, technology for students in the classroom, and the ability to loan computers to those who need them for online classes are some of the ways campaign donations help fulfill CARA’s mission.
