June 20, 2018 - Mayor Tom Henry today was joined by Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill, Reverend Dr. Charles Harrison, Fort Wayne UNITED representatives, and local community and business leaders to announce that the City of Fort Wayne plans to become a TenPoint Coalition city.
The coalition is the next step in Fort Wayne’s efforts to influence the lives of young people, families and neighborhoods by implementing proactive strategies to reduce violence and emphasize the importance of education, employment and community partnerships.
The City will identify a neighborhood in the community to examine the areas of crime, education, health, and housing and how to improve conditions and the quality of life for residents and explore opportunities for growth and future success.
A number of cities in Indiana and across the country have or are exploring creating a TenPoint Coalition. Fort Wayne anticipates becoming an official TenPoint Coalition city later this year. The effort is being modeled after the TenPoint Coalition in Indianapolis.
