The Greater Cincinnati Homeless Coalition is excited to announce that the Homeless Stand Down is being re-designed this year. Since many of our member organizations expressed their clients needs were not being met at the event, we decided to take the feedback and change much of the event. The name change reflects the new focus on connecting people who are experiencing homelessness and in danger of experiencing homelessness with resources. We are focusing this year on direct services that can be provided on the day of the event. This means we will need volunteers and donations!
The Know Your City: Resource Event will not be possible without your help! We are seeking volunteers for the event. Give up a few hours of your day to help the event run smoothly and serve our guests. Click here to register as a volunteer.
We are also seeking donations of hygiene items, household items, and kids goodies so our guests can leave with something special. See below for specific items we are requesting.
