MISSION: HER Cincinnati (formerly Cincinnati Union Bethel) has been responding to human service needs since 1830, and today our focus is on Housing, Education, and Recovery Services. We believe all women are strong and resilient, but sometimes circumstances and society can create barriers to success. HER Cincinnati fights to dismantle those barriers and drives innovative programs united in their vision of a community where all women have the skills and confidence to thrive.

Our three pillars of services are:

HOUSING: We operate two affordable housing communities where our residents pay just 30% of their income toward rent. At the historic Anna Louise Inn, we offer supportive services that help single women find a pathway to security.

EDUCATION: Our other Housing community is a unique environment dedicated to single-parent college students. While housing offers security, our unique and transformative programming provides wraparound services to help our participants attain their college degree and find a pathway to self-sufficiency for themselves and their children.

RECOVERY: We guide women on a pathway to reclaim their lives through our trauma-informed addictions recovery services, open to all women in the greater community and specializing in treatment for survivors of human trafficking in our award-winning Off the Streets program.

We are HER Cincinnati—our name reflects both what we do and who we serve.
