The journey for any student with Lifetime.Education working towards his or her High School Equivalency Diploma, starts with CASAS – which stands for Comprehensive Adult Student Assessment System. Using this system, we are able to gauge exactly what a student needs to begin his or her journey.
Yesterday, the Gathering Place Clubhouse hit the ground running! Four of the staff and members at the Gathering Place have gone the distance and completed certification with CASAS to become Proctors and Coordinators – the highest number of Certified Proctors we have at any one partner location! Along with their enthusiasm for education, these Certified Proctors are going to be instrumental in the journey of students at the Gathering Place.
Certified Proctors are a big part of what we do and we are currently in need of Volunteers to help eager students start their journey with us by giving assessments. Certification is free and scheduling is flexible.

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.
Yesterday, Homeless Coalition of Fort Wayne was with Redemption House Ministries for the first monthly television round-table discussion show at Access Fort Wayne for the Fort Wayne Area Planning Council on Homelessness Outreach and Advocacy Committee.
Q: How are students who particpate in programs based on language arts and math assessed?
A: When a student begins his or her educational journey, it’s important for the instructor to understand exactly where he or she stands in terms of math and language skills. The Homeless Coalition uses a computer-based system provided by CASAS (Comprehensive Adult Student Assessment Systems). Being computer-based, CASAS is mobile and allows us to assess students at any location.
