ESTABLISHED: 1924, by James N. Gamble of Procter and Gamble
MISSION: Breaking the cycle of poverty and despair…one life at a time.
SERVING OUR COMMUNITY: We serve over 10,000 people in need each year, including 3,500 youth—most of them at-risk. We have four main cause areas.
Food/Shelter: Up to 72 men stay in our Cincinnati emergency homeless shelter each night. They receive three meals a day, case management, and day classes. We also operate a men’s shelter and a women and children’s shelter in Middletown. For Thanksgiving, over 400 lowincome families pick out the items for their meal at our Thanksgiving Exchange. Also, our Jobs Van picks up panhandlers and the homeless and offers them a day’s work cleaning up the city with the goal of connecting them to the services they need to help long-term.
Recovery: We offer men’s and women’s long-term residential addiction recovery programs for up to 36 men and 36 women, which include transitional housing and aftercare. And volunteer runners aid those in recovery by training alongside them to comprise our Flying Pig Marathon team.
Jobs: We offer job readiness classes and job placement for people who have felonies and limited work histories as well as people who do not. Our high school outreach program at seven urban schools helps students plan for their life after graduation—in the workforce or in college.
Youth: Our tutoring program impacts more than 500 youth at more than 25 sites throughout Greater Cincinnati. We also offer programs involving summer camps, ballet, mentoring, college scholarships, Hispanic outreach and more. And we annually help 150 low-income families afford to buy gifts for 450 children at our Christmas Store.
