Following in the footsteps of our program with The Carriage House in Fort Wayne, members and staff from The Gathering Place will be trained as Volunteers with Lifetime.Education? while our staff and volunteers provide support in the form of tutor training, curriculum, material, and digital support.
The facility will house homeless youth as well as those aging out of the already overwhelmed foster care system.
Many gathered from all across Fort Wayne to celebrate the opening of a facility that is desperately needed and will surely be a tremendous asset to the community-at-large. For more information, visit the official SAFY page for The Coutyard.

Yesterday, Homeless Coalition of Fort Wayne was with Redemption House Ministries for the first monthly television round-table discussion show at Access Fort Wayne for the Fort Wayne Area Planning Council on Homelessness Outreach and Advocacy Committee.
The Homeless Coalition of Fort Wayne is very proud to acknowledge the accomplishment of our newest high school equivalency diploma graduate, Cindy, who recently received her High School Equivalency Diploma.
This Monday the Homeless Coalition was at the Fort Wayne Rescue Mission assessing new High School Equivalency Diploma students Monday morning. Two new students, Bruce and Richard, are starting their educational journey with us and will begin tutoring in the near future.
Q: How are students who particpate in programs based on language arts and math assessed?
A: When a student begins his or her educational journey, it’s important for the instructor to understand exactly where he or she stands in terms of math and language skills. The Homeless Coalition uses a computer-based system provided by CASAS (Comprehensive Adult Student Assessment Systems). Being computer-based, CASAS is mobile and allows us to assess students at any location.
