A healthier future for southeast Fort Wayne
Neighborhood Health Ward project
For more than 50 years, Neighborhood Health has been the leading community health center in the region. Over the years, we have expanded both in our services and locations to help bring health equity to our community.
With a myriad of health concerns, including high rates of hypertension, diabetes, and infant mortality it is time to address the healthcare crisis in southeast Fort Wayne.
Neighborhood Health is expanding services to our newly acquired Ward building in the heart of the Oxford community to help address these continued needs.
Neighborhood Health selected as The Big Give grant recipient
Neighborhood Health has been selected as the final recipient of the Do it Best Foundation The Big Give grant. The Big Give offers a grant of $100,000, plus a 1:1 match of up to $50,000. This grant will advance the Ward project, moving Neighborhood Health closer to the goal of providing services in the heart of the Oxford community to help address critical health needs of residents, including a focus on preventing infant mortality.
