Homelessness Prevention

Together, our outreach centers in the West End and Winton Hills and our 59 conferences prevent homelessness throughout Greater Cincinnati.  Those in need meet personally with our staff or volunteers to alleviate the initial need through financial assistance and work towards long-term solutions through budget counseling, our financial literacy program, job readiness program and other resources.

St. Vincent de Paul, the Family Housing Partnership, Strategies to End Homelessness and the Executive Service Corps of Cincinnati, in collaboration with numerous local organizations serving homeless families, partnered to conduct the Family Homeless Services Study. The goals of the Family Homelessness Study were to better document the need of local homeless families through analysis of local data, to identify local & national best practices and gaps in the local system, and to draw out common themes as a foundation for a community-wide plan addressing family homelessness.
