A (wonderfully) busy Monday!

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.

 

After leaving the Rescue Mission, The Homeless Coalition of Fort Wayne went to City Hall for the Fort Wayne Area Planning Council on Homelessness Outreach & Advocacy meeting to present a new project. The HCFTW project is a new website designed to serve as a central-location for all agencies serving the Homeless in Fort Wayne to plan and share their events and community updates.

Lincoln Finance Park, Hope House, 4-15-14

We went to Lincoln Finance Park this evening with our tutor, Dominique, and her Financial Skills students from Hope House.

Lincoln Finance Park is a wonderful learning tool, where people are assigned an identity – complete with career, income, kids, and circumstances as they walk in the door.

All individuals must then make their way from shop to shop – insurance, food, clothing, etc – and learn to live within their means.
