The Facing Project

This week, WBOI is teaming up with The Facing Project—a grassroots initiative which pairs local authors with people living in homelessness right here in Fort Wayne.

The authors worked to create stories based on their time spent with the homeless which aim to shed light on their often unheard struggles.

You can hear the Facing Project during Morning Edition at 7:30AM and during All Things Considered at 5:30PM. All of the stories have been produced by WBOI's Sarah Delia.

Legislation offers incentives for future teachers

Indiana’s highest-performing high school and college students could get some of their student loans paid back by the government if they teach in some of the state’s neediest subjects and areas.
