A big thank you to start the week!

We’d like to give a Monday morning shout out to a volunteer of ours who recently completed a Financial Skills course at Hope House, Inc. and is currently still serving as an ESL tutor with another great partner of ours, Crime Victim Care of Allen County.

Thank you for all that you have done and still do, Erika!

Volunteers, like Erika, through Lifetime.Education, give just 1 hour of each week, but make a huge difference in the lives of others.

We’re excited to begin our partnership with The Gathering Place Clubhouse in Redford, Michigan.

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.

This partnership will mark the second Clubhouse facility where our programs and services are offered. Click here to learn what makes the Clubhouse model so unique.

Happy Birthday Lifetime.Education!

Today is our birthday!

Two years ago today, we officially opened for business as the Homeless Coalition of Fort Wayne, Inc.

In that time, we’ve built partnerships and educational programs with a lot of amazing agencies and groups in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

 

You can see a few of our partnerships by clicking here.

Today, on our 2nd birthday, our name officially becomes Lifetime.Education. You’ve probably seen the name and logo on our pictures, Facebook posts, and other places already!

Why did we choose Lifetime.Education?

We’ve always been about education. It’s how we’re best able to contribute and make a difference.

Our new name reflects who we are, what we do, and our belief that no matter what ones current circumstances are, education can always improve ones quality of life.

Although we started with the goal of serving those experiencing homelessness, our programs quickly  grew to include all those impacted by homelessness, poverty, mental illness, and substance abuse.

As we go forward:

With our new home city, Detroit, will come new partnerships. While we maintain and support our programs in Fort Wayne, new programs will begin in the Metro-Detroit area.

We will continue to seek out and build partnerships and, as our mission states, “increase and expand access to educational opportunity” in the Metro-Detroit, Michigan and Fort Wayne , Indiana areas.

We’re so thankful for our wonderful volunteers and the generous support of community members, like yourself. We’re looking forward to years of progress to come!
