Fort Wayne’s AWS Foundation is celebrating its ten-year anniversary in 2017, and to celebrate the occasion, AWS presented a donation to the community.

The Fort Wayne nonprofit Blue Jacket, Inc. no longer has to pay rent. The AWS Foundation donated a quarter acre campus to the workforce training organization last week.

Blue Jacket had been leasing their 19,000 square foot building for two years.

The building on South Calhoun Street near Downtown Fort Wayne has a history of serving underprivileged residents – from people with disabilities to refugees; it now houses Blue Jacket’s programs for disadvantaged job seekers, including ex-offenders.
