Food & Shelter

Hot Meals

Just $2.04 is all it takes to give a warm meal and care to a hungry, homeless and hurting person. It’s such a small amount – but it has the power to change a life. To a homeless person, it’s more than a meal. It’s hope.

Hot Meals

Overnight Shelter

In the past year, 910 people in Hamilton County spent time sleeping on the streets. City Gospel Mission provides safe shelter, nutritious meals, hot showers and much more. You can reach out into the streets and help save a life right now.

Recovery

Recovery

We see heartache and brokenness in the eyes of the men and women who come to our recovery programs. But with those defeated emotions there is often a hopeful seeking… for something different, something better. Our residential recovery programs help renew their hope and rebuild their lives.

Recovery

Step Forward

Featured in Runner’s World Magazine and highlighted in many news stories, Step Forward unites and mobilizes volunteers to help men and women in addiction recovery at City Gospel Mission to break the cycle of poverty, despair and addiction. We show God’s love to them while training for and then participating in the Cincinnati Flying Pig and Queen Bee.

Step Forward

Aftercare & Transitional Housing

Men and women who graduate from our residential recovery programs need support as they transition to self-sufficiency. Our transitional apartments offer independent living with supportive services for our recovery program graduates. And our aftercare program offers supportive services like counseling, mentoring and group meetings. This extra support helps men and women maintain sobriety, find long-term housing and rebuild their lives.

Rising Scholars

Under-resourced Christian students with leadership potential are often overlooked. Many of these students don’t have the support they need to craft their future story. Rising Scholars helps under-resourced students succeed in their education, grow spiritually, accomplish goals, make career choices and develop healthy relationships.

Whiz Kids Tutoring

Tutoring has the power to boost children’s academic scores, create strong readers and improve confidence. But our volunteers become so much more than tutors. They become mentors, friends and positive role models that change the lives of children beyond the classroom.
