Gary Community Ventures recently released a new tool – MyFriendBen – to help parents quickly understand if they are eligible for state and federal benefits. MyFriendBen was created with input/feedback from the community with the goal of empowering families to access the benefits they need to reach their goals.  

The tool gives users a preview of the benefits for which they are eligible, each benefits’ estimated cash value, and the time it takes to receive the benefit. You can read more about MyFriendBen by visiting this one-pager. For any questions, or to receive a demonstration, contact Kathleen Bottagaro at
