The Rescue Mission and Indiana Wesleyan University in Fort Wayne are launching educational opportunities with the Bridge Initiative to employees, associates, and the community. The nonprofit says, under the agreement, IWU will offer discounted tuition rates for their church partnership program.
“The Fort Wayne Rescue Mission excels at the second chance and providing a strong foundation for those who want to start over,” said Matt Lucas, chancellor at IWU, National & Global. “By working together, we can empower people to restart and sustain a new life.”
The partners say they will offer reduced rates for students enrolled in 24-30 credit hours yearly. The total tuition discount due to the partnership will be about 37%.
“We are very excited to partner with IWU to help those who fully need it get their degrees,” said Donovan Coley, chief executive officer of The Fort Wayne Rescue Mission. “This entire partnership offers excellent education resources and opportunities to encourage people to further their calling.”
The partnership discounts apply to anyone in the community who registers through the Rescue Mission-Indiana Wesleyan portal. Anyone interested may register for the upcoming Summer Semester beginning in June.
