Two Fort Wayne non-profits that serve women in the region announced they’re  merging Wednesday. 

Hope House will now be a division of YWCA Northeast Indiana. The two organizations have complimentary missions - Hope House provides  transitional housing for homeless women facing addiction. 

The 120-year-old  YWCA offers a domestic violence shelter for women in Allen and the surrounding  counties.   

Debbie Beckman is the President and CEO of YWCA Northeast Indiana. She says  more awareness of the issues is creating more demand.
