As an architect, and as a human being, Nathan Moore understands that basic shelter is a foundational need for people.
“I cannot imagine a more important mission than providing shelter and stability to those most in need.”
Those most in need right now in Fort Wayne are single homeless women, who have no emergency shelter to flee danger and receive needed support and services. St. Joseph’s Missions is raising funds to create Fort Wayne’s first such shelter.
“Dignity and respect, safety and love are needed by all of us and I truly believe that a safe environment is crucial to a person's well being,” says Nathan. “I am confident that this mission is being blessed because there is a great need for a safe place and a nurturing environment for single homeless women in our community.”
The shelter’s impact on the women and the community as a whole could be profound.
“I look forward to seeing those who are served by the shelter experience love and growth on a personal level and then sharing themselves and their stories with others who need that love. The idea that those who participate in the shelter will enrich and empower our community through their growth and sharing with others can only strengthen the fabric of the community.”
