What We Do

Vincent Village provides a unique array of services that meet the needs of families who are experiencing the crisis of homelessness and continues to meet their needs through providing both permanent housing and supportive services.

Vincent Village has five programs that serve homeless families with children:

Vincent House

The Vincent House Transitional Shelter provides shelter and supportive services for homeless families with children while they work toward higher levels of self-sufficiency and prepare to move to their own housing. Shelter online application available

Permanent Housing - Phase II Program

Vincent Village affordable rental housing provides privately subsidized housing to families exiting Vincent House and other shelters in the city of Fort Wayne.

HOME Academy

The HOME Academy offers clients who are unemployed or underemployed in all programs, intensive daily workshops that focus on building employment skills, communication skills, self-confidence, wellness, as well as exposure to post-secondary education options.

Youth Services:  A child’s view of homelessness

In addressing the needs of the family, youth (in particular) are often traumatized and are at greater risk for developmental issues, trouble at school, and coping skills. Many of these youth have faced neglectful and abusive situations themselves in the midst of unstable circumstances in their family. It is imperative that we have the adequate resources and programs to meet the needs of youth in order to end the cycle of homelessness and the trauma that accompanies it.


Vincent Village works closely with other Fort Wayne area shelters including Interfaith Hospitality, Transitions, Charis House and Genesis Outreach who refer clients for continued services in the Vincent Village Phase II Program
