WHAT IS FORWARD WAYNE COUNTY?
Forward Wayne County is a backbone organization that serves as a catalyst for change in Wayne County, Indiana. We are also a community development arm of the Wayne County Foundation.

Our goal is to support a county-wide collective effort to attract, develop, and retain a highly competitive workforce to meet the current and future needs of our area businesses and industries.
