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 homeless, hurting and hungry people each year, including 3,500 youth, through four cause areas.
Food/Shelter: We annually serve 110,000 nutritious meals and provide more than 42,000 nights of safe shelter for the homeless. During the holidays, we provide 450 families with Thanksgiving meals.
Recovery: We offer men’s and women’s long-term 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 and placement programs 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 800 youth, many of them at-risk, at more than 40 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.

OTHER WAYS TO HELP:
• Donate: It costs just $2.04 to provide a meal and life-changing care to someone who is hurting and homeless. With your support, we can help people to overcome hard times.
• Volunteer: Volunteers are critical to City Gospel Mission. More than 2,500 people volunteer with us each year. There are many ways for you, your company, school or church to get involved. If you have a heart for helping, we invite you to partner with us.
• Give Items: It’s easy to take a toothbrush or a winter hat for granted. Many of the men, women and children we serve don’t have basic essentials. Help us provide nutritious meals, clothes, school supplies, hygiene products and other essentials to people in need.
