With seemingly endless energy and enthusiasm, Rinehart is committed serving the community with respect and dignity in whatever ways there is need.

Although COVID-19 forced Wellspring Interfaith Social Services to suspend all non-essential programs, the organization has been working non-stop to lend a hand to those in need and keep its population's food insecurity at bay.

Located at 1316 Broadway in Fort Wayne's historic West Central Neighborhood, Wellspring has been actively providing assistance and support city-wide for 52 years.

For a look at what this entails, WBOI's Julia Meek sat down with Wellspring's executive director, Melissa Rinehart, to discuss the rising needs this year's excessive challenges have created and the resulting community effort.

You can connect with Wellspring Interfaith Social Services at its website.

A Fort Wayne native, Julia is a radio host, graphic artist, and community volunteer, who has contributed to NIPR both on- and off-air for forty years. Besides being WBOI's arts & culture reporter, she currently co-produces and hosts Folktales and Meet the Music.
