Township Assistance


A trustee is responsible for helping persons experiencing financial distress in their township. Applicants are required to complete an application for assistance and schedule an appointment to discuss his/her need. Once the application and interview is complete, a thorough investigation is conducted and when found eligible, assistance will be provided in the most economical means available.

A person or family is in need if there is not enough income or resources to provide the basic necessities of life. Necessities of life include: food, shelter, essential utilities, medical needs, household supplies, and clothing.

If you’re a resident of Aboite Township and need assistance, Township Assistance Application packets are available in the Township Office or you can download the Township Assistance Application and Document Verification form on this site. Call the office at 260-432-0970 to schedule an appointment.
