January 19, 2018 - Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry on January 18 helped cut the ribbon on a rehabilitated home that is part of the Vincent Village campus. The home, 2702 Gay St., is the first of six that will be rehabilitated with funding that the City of Fort Wayne receives from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). City HUD funds will also be used to demolish another home and build a new one in its place.
Local homeless families will move from area shelters into the homes as they are completed. The families will pay rent based on their incomes.
“Thanks to a great partnership between the City and Vincent Village, we are addressing homelessness one person and one family at a time,” said Mayor Henry. “By working together, we are making a meaningful difference in this neighborhood and in our community.”
