Renewed Partnerships

Lifetime.Education is pleased to announce that we have officially renewed partnerships with two of our closest partner facilities in Fort Wayne – Cedars HOPE – a facility providing long-term supportive care for women living with serious mental illness and Hope House, a division of YWCA of Northeast Indiana -a home for chemically dependent women on their way to recovery.

Lifetime.Education has long offered our services at both partner locations in Fort Wayne.

At Cedars HOPE, we debuted our first Nutrition and Personal Wellness Course in Fort Wayne – a new version of which, with emphasis on hands-on cooking experience, begins next week. Cedars HOPE is also home to a Lifetime.Education full-service computer lab that residents use both during our Digital Skills Course taught each week and also to practice on their own time.

Hope House, a division of YWCA of Northeast Indiana, has been an instrumental partner for Lifetime.Education since our begining. We’ve held many Financial Skills Courses, Adult Basic Education (HSED/GED) Tutoring, and on-going Digital Skills classes that take place each Wednesday.

We believe strongly in the mission of our partner facilities and excited to continue our journey and work together into the next year.

Our end-of-year report.

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.

Finance Class Gradutes from Hope House, Inc. visit Junior Achievement’s Lincoln Finance Park

This evening we joined our ‘My Money’ finance class graduates from Hope House, Inc., a home for chemically dependent women, along with their tutor, Kyla, at Junior Achievement’s Lincoln Finance Park.

Lincoln Finance Park is a real-world simulation exercise where students are assigned a life role as they enter the building. This role includes life circumstances which include marital status, income, and other factors.

The facility includes mock restaurants, insurance, gas, electricity bills, and entertainment spending exercises to teach students how to budget and live within their income.
