During this unprecedented time, many of our local ministries are experiencing difficulties. Please be praying for God to supply them with all they need at this time.
The Euell A. Wilson Center is a Christian organization designed to enrich the hearts and lives of children and strengthen the family through the love of Christ. We will do this through educational, social, performing arts and spiritual development to empower youth and their families for success immediately. We will work to transform the lives of our juveniles through using this time for academic enrichment, wholesome fun, and community service. We strive to protect both kids and adults from becoming victims of crime, reduce teen pregnancy, eliminates smoking and drug use. This strategy helps youth to develop values and skills needed to become contributing citizens and productive leaders.
Smith Academy for Excellence uses strong academic, character, and service learning curricula to develop young men into lifelong leaders which will create an opportunity for superior academic growth and holistic long term success. In addition, SAFE is committed to cultivating each child’s unique personality by instilling honorable moral principles.
While the children are in the host home, family coaches help parents get back on their feet by providing mentorship and accountability. Host families and placing families are supported by a team of volunteers who provide help such as transportation, meals, resource donations, mentoring, and employment assistance.
Fort Wayne and surrounding area churches play a significant role in recruiting and supporting their congregations to serve and reach out to parents who are in a crisis situation. Churches of all sizes and various denominational or non-denominational backgrounds are active partners with Fort Wayne Safe Families for Children. Our volunteers come from the smallest to largest congregations, as followers of Jesus are awakening to the urgent need to minister to struggling families in our own cities.
Imagine being homeless and unable to provide for your children. That’s the reality for a growing number of women and children in our community. At Charis House, these women not only find relief from homelessness, but they’re also able to heal and move forward. Our restorative programs equip them to find jobs and housing, navigate life’s challenges, experience emotional stability and grow in their relationship with Christ. Because the goal is not just to live life, but to thrive.
Some women are fleeing domestic abuse; others are pregnant with no support network; many just need a safe place to stay and encouragement as they rebuild their lives.
Using proven strategies, Hearten House staff and trained volunteers will walk alongside women who are ready to overcome trauma, addictions, and destructive habits, on their way to self-sufficiency.
Together, we can help women find hope, healing, and the love of Christ.
A Hope Center cares for you. We respect your right to privacy, and your right to personal and spiritual beliefs that may differ from our own. We also respect your right to make the best choices for your own life. That’s true no matter what the circumstances of your pregnancy, no matter what pregnancy options you’re weighing.
A Hope Center was founded and remains today a Christian organization. You will recognize our Christian values in the kind and compassionate care we provide. We deeply respect that matters of faith are highly personal, and as such, we will discuss faith topics with your permission or at your request. People of all faiths (or none at all) are welcome at A Hope Center.
