Grand opening of The Coutyard, a facility of SAFY

On Thursday, July 10th, The Homeless Coalition of Fort Wayne, Inc. joined SAFY to celebrate the grand opening of their new facility “The Courtyard” located at 2828 Fairfield Ave, here in Fort Wayne. The Homeless Coalition of Fort Wayne, Inc.  has formed a partnership with SAFY and will be providing educational services at The Courtyard.

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.
