MAYOR HENRY ANNOUNCES LUTHERAN FOUNDATION AND FWPD PROGRAMS MOVING FORWARD IN CONJUNCTION WITH CITY'S QUALITY OF LIFE INITIATIVE

Janaury 24, 2020 – Mayor Tom Henry today joined representatives from The Lutheran Foundation, Fort Wayne Police Department and the City of Fort Wayne’s Community Development Division to announce that another portion of the City’s quality of life plan that was approved in October of 2019 is being implemented.

The partnership with The Lutheran Foundation is focused on addressing the opioid crisis that is negatively impacting Fort Wayne and Allen County and the rest of the country. This crisis intervention opportunity is a result of additional revenue collected by the State of Indiana through income taxes and distributed to the City of Fort Wayne. Mayor Henry’s Administration and City Council worked collaboratively to approve the quality of life plan that also includes enhancing neighborhoods through funding to the four neighborhood area partnerships and a partnership with Easter Seals Arc to provide workforce development training for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
