Five questions for Erin Ness

Five questions for Erin Ness, executive director, St. Joseph Missions Women’s Shelter

1 What’s is St. Joseph Missions Women’s Shelter? A: St. Joseph Missions is an emergency shelter for single women here in Fort Wayne. We opened our doors May of 2021. Prior to us opening our doors, there was no emergency shelter specifically for single women. There was/is the domestic violence shelter, but if a woman wasn’t experiencing d.v. then there was nowhere for her to go.
