Southeast

Zip Codes: 46803, 46806, 46816

Southeast Fort Wayne is the most diverse quadrant of the city. Home to a wide variety of cultures, languages, cuisines, and churches, its family-run restaurants and grocery stores will take you on a journey around the world.

Southeast will be the focus of a new embedded journalism program called On the Ground which is launching in partnership with the St. Joseph Community Health Foundation, Parkview Health, NIPSCO, and Bridge of Grace Compassionate Ministries Center.

From August-September 2020, Input will be hiring Southeast Fort Wayne-based writers and photographers to produce weekly stories that generate conversations around assets, challenges, and opportunities in their neighborhoods—as determined by Southeast residents themselves.

Previous On the Ground programs have taken place in Memphis, Tampa, Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, Cincinnati, Flint, and Detroit.
