In Our City
We are a support congregation for the Interfaith Hospitality Network of Greater Cincinnati. We work together with First Unitarian Church to help provide food and shelter for the homeless of the city. IHN also provides job training and housing placement services with the goal of re-integrating homeless families back into the community.
The Intercommunity Justice and Peace Center is a voice for peace and justice related issues. We support and relate with them in different parts of their outreach. “We are a coalition of faith-based organizations and individuals who work together to educate around justice issues, take collaborative action and do public witness. We address local, national and international concerns focusing on economic justice, women’s issues, human rights, racial equality, peace and the environment.” (From IJPC website)
We work with People Working Cooperatively for their twice a year home repair and maintenance events throughout the city. “ People Working Cooperatively has the tools to help thousands of low-income, elderly, and disabled homeowners live a higher quality of life. Annually our thousands of dedicated volunteers and professional tradesmen help Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky residents with critical home repairs, modifications, and maintenance services.” (From PWC website)
The first Wednesday of every month we bake and serve desserts for the meal at City Gospel Mission, located on Elm Street in the Over-The-Rhine neighborhood. City Gospel Mission describes itself this way: “ Since 1924, City Gospel Mission has served hurting, needy, and homeless people, providing help and hope in ever-increasing numbers through the years. The Mission provides a caring, supportive environment where homeless and hurting men and women are treated with respect and encouraged to accept responsibility for rebuilding their lives in an atmosphere of love and acceptance.” (From City Gospel Mission website)
