It was our third year holding a clinic at Redemption House.
Thanks to everyone who participated and, of course, our community Pharmacy partners who make it all possible.
It’s that time of year, again!
Lifetime.Education is organizing no-cost Community Flu Shot Clinics throughout Fort Wayne. Clinics have already been scheduled with our partner sites Redemption House Ministries and The Carriage House.
How it works:
Visit our site at clinics.lifetime.education and fill out our request form and we’ll schedule a day and time where a Registered Pharmacist will come to your location and administer the flu shots. There is no cost for our services, or the clinic. Vouchers are provided for anybody unable to pay, so nobody will be turned away.

This past Friday, Janeann, a Lifetime.Education Volunteer, instructed the first of the monthly class series called “Coffee & Computers”.
Coffee & Computers is designed to be a more Question & Answer type discussion. The Q & A sessions are accompanied by on-screen presentations and group conversation and, of course, coffee!
Sign-up sheets for each month can be found throughout The Carriage House. If you’d like more information, feel free to e-mail Janeann at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Homeless Coalition is proud to be launching two new Digital Skills courses this month with partners here in Fort Wayne.
Janeann, who has been with the Homeless Coalition since February of last year, will be training members and staff of the Carriage House to prepare them for teaching Digital Skills to other members. In addition to serving the Homeless Coalition at such facilities as Hope House and Carriage House, Janeann is a professional trainer of digital technologies and operates her own company – KeyPoint Training, in addition to contracting for Microsoft.
Today, the Homeless Coalition has doubled the size of its computer lab at the Carriage House in preparation for what we are sure is going to be a very successful course!
Dave, a computer professional and teacher by trade, has been with the Homeless Coalition since April of last year. Dave has served at Wellspring Interfaith Social Services through the Homeless Coalition as well as helping out with our Community Flu Shot Clinics. Starting this month, Dave will be instructing residents of Hope House in Digital Skills.
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.

Channel 10 was on location yesterday evening to cover the “Longest Night” walk, hosted by the Fort Wayne Rescue Mission.

The Homeless Coalition was represented by founding Board of Director Officers Dmitriy & Alex Usher. Scroll down to watch the video from wane.com or visit their page by clicking here.
The Fort Wayne Area Planning Council on Homelessness held a meeting today at Citizen’s Square in the Omni Room. Individuals from organizations throughout Fort Wayne serving individuals experiencing homelessness came together to be part of a dialogue on how we, as a city, can move forward. This particular FWAPCH meeting had record attendance – everyone from agency leaders, to city department heads, the Deputy Mayor, and even a representative from Senator Donnelly’s Office attended to listen, offer suggestions, and learn. In addition to record attendance, this FWAPCH meeting was also featured on wane.com and Channel 15.

A team of Computer Science students are showcasing their capstone project – a mobile app for the Homeless Coalition of Fort Wayne & FortWayne.Education volunteers to check email, report volunteer hours, and more.
We’re excited to see their progress.
