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.
Lifetime.Education volunteers, intern, and staff met today with staff and members from The Gathering Place – a Clubhouse-style facility in Redford, Michigan. Gathering Place members and staff have already completed their training with Lifetime.Education and are ready to get started!
In the next few weeks, students will be assessed, assigned, and begin working with their personal tutors. We’re excited to be a part of another Clubhouse and delighted that The Gathering Place has chosen to participate in our program and welcome us into their program.
We know we’re going to do some incredible work together!
As many of you know, Lifetime.Education has a wonderful English as a Second Language (ESL) program with Crime Victim Care of Allen County – an agency that serves victims of domestic violence, with an emphasis on immigrant populations.
We are pleased to announce that, in addition to expanding our ESL program, we will begin to offer tutoring in Citizenship for individuals who want to become naturalized citiizens of the United States.
All of this is made possible by you, our community of wonderful volunteers. We thank you so very much for all that you do!
We’d like you to help us by testing out our mobile app for Android. Your e-mail, calendar, and hourly reports are all 1 tap away!
The app is currently in beta and is not available in the market. To install, you will need to go to settings and allow install from unknown sources/non-market apps.
By testing out the app, and giving your feedback, you will help us to shape the final version.

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 walk honors the memory of individuals that lost their lives over the past year while experiencing homelessness in Fort Wayne. 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.
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.
We had a wonderful time at the “Real Change” Pop Up Arts Event. Click on the image below to look at a few shots from the event held during Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week 2014.
It successfully captured the synergy between the arts and the social services sector in Fort Wayne, Indiana. It was organized by the Fort Wayne Area Planning Council on Homelessness and held at Wunderkammer Company.
