The FWHA has created a unique center for property managers and residents to get information about the programs and resources in the Fort Wayne Community. Workshops, classes, and special events are also available for more in-depth or hands-on instructions.
Every resident has resources to draw on: Government, Faith-Based, Community, and Family & Friends. Each area has limited resources, so individually their response is limited. We can help leverage and combine these resources so that you are able to get a better response.
Whether you are new to Public Housing, HCVP, Fort Wayne, or you have been around for years, there is always something of interest for you at our Resource Center. Please contact us!
The FWHA Resident Services Resource Center is located at 3005 McCormick Avenue, (near the intersection of McCormick and Slataper St.) Formerly used as the Boys and Girls Club, this Center was recently remodeled to contain a Community Room, Classrooms, Computer Lab and Kitchen for use by FWHA residents, staff and partner agencies.
