Funded Partner Feature | Associated Churches of Fort Wayne

Associated Churches of Fort Wayne is devoted to providing not only basic needs like emergency food relief through its food bank but also provides compassion and hope for the community. Associated Churches works to help Allen County grow into a vibrant and healthy community encompassing holistic health. The United Way investment team saw true value in its mission. Associated Churches of Fort Wayne is now recognized as one of the United Way of Allen County’s Funded Partners for the 2019-2022 funding cycle.

Associated Churches influences individuals across Allen County – from our children to youth, and adults. Where could you fit in? Maybe you’d like to pack food in the food bank for distribution to 25 pantries in Allen County, perhaps you’d like to be involved with The Landing – a safe place for teens celebrating their recovery, or you could help at A Baby’s Closet that encourages young mothers to nurture their ability to be a great parent. Associated Churches has launched a new initiative called Abel’s Offering. This is a teaching campaign focused on community gardening and giving your best offering (fruits and vegetables) back to the Food Bank system for others. At Abel’s Offering they are creating a space for teaching holistic care, mindfulness, and God’s teachings. There are many opportunities at Associated Churches to give back and your volunteering could make a true difference.

The heart of Associated Churches is their faith. Faith is what brings hope, meaning, and joy. Associated Churches is a place where you can live out your faith. Through collaboration with United Way of Allen County, Associated Churches is making a collective impact on our community. Together, United, organizations in Allen County are joining forces to create a healthy community for our residents. That is what being a funded partner of United Way is all about.

Thank you to Associated Churches of Fort Wayne for offering life-changing programs to so many individuals in our community. With nearly 1 in 4 households in Allen County working hard but struggling to survive, you are a true pillar for creating lasting change in our community. Together, we can connect resources that will make a true difference in the lives of many.
