The Women and Girls’ Study of Greater Fort Wayne

The Women and Girls’ Study of Greater Fort Wayne is a redefining moment to recognize the power of women and the future of girls in our community. Statistically, when women thrive in a community, their families and in turn the whole community, thrives.
