How you help Housing for all families requires the community to come together as one. Volunteers and organizations provide hospitality to families experiencing the crisis of homelessness in the form of meals, overnight shelter, fundraising, in-kind donations, and financial support. Our Interfaith partners, representing the richness and diversity of greater Cincinnati, have been the driving force of what we do for 30 years. These community ambassadors spread the message that affordable housing is not a challenge too big to overcome, but one that each of us plays a part in resolving. Put your special skills and background to good use and let us know how you want to make a difference!
About us Established in 1991, Found House Interfaith Housing Network (formerly Interfaith Hospitality Network of Greater Cincinnati) provides temporary shelter through interfaith communities to families with no place to turn. We connect families to the housing they deserve. We build a community where housing is there for all families to find, whatever their needs, or budget, in support of their goals and dreams. We keep families together through housing crisis and homelessness.
