Homeless Coalition of Fort Wayne is proud to present our end-of-year report we presented to our tutors, volunteers, and students who attended our end-of-year get together.
We’ve blessed with amazing volunteers from all walks of life and are so thankful for the opportunity to live, work, and serve a community as soulful and inclusive as Fort Wayne, Indiana. This city really is a special place.
The Carriage House is a clubhouse model facility serving individuals with mental illness in Fort Wayne, Indiana. This model is unique in that members and staff typically have equal say and authority in decision making.
Homeless Coalition of Fort Wayne, Inc. has been offering High School Equivalancy Dipolma (HSED) tutoring, Math Readiness, and Reading Comprehension at the Carriage House for the last year.
Fun fact: The Carriage House has the distinction of being the first and only partner facility where members who receive services have been trained as Volunteer Tutors with the Homeless Coalition and assigned to help fellow members.
To ensure Homeless Coalition students at the Carriage House have access to technology to help them succeed, the Homeless Coalition installed and maintains a computer lab at the Carriage House with computer access exclusively for educational purposes.

Mary, a Homeless Coalition of Fort Wayne, Inc. student from the Carriage House, a clubhouse model program that assists adults in their recovery from mental illness, jumps four grade levels in her first 5 months our program. We couldn’t be prouder. Way to go Mary!
