Meet Minnette Baum, an amazing force for change. As a Jewish immigrant from Russia, she changed the way Fort Wayne addressed basic needs in the early days of the 20th Century. Ms. Baum recreated her experiences from Jane Addam’s Hull House in Chicago to establish a settlement house at her own home at 1313 W Wayne St. in Fort Wayne. Many of today’s major local human service agencies can trace their origins to her efforts.
