Help Keep Our Neighbors Cool

We all know Cincinnati summers can be extremely hot and humid. We see the dangerous and uncomfortable impacts firsthand during our home visits. Apartments and smaller homes often have poor ventilation and offer no retreat from the heat. Without access to an air conditioner, children with asthma, the elderly, people with respiratory issues, or people burdened by illness may face greater health risks.

More information on this program, coming in Spring 2024!

Leaving an Impact

In 2023, we provided heat relief to more families than ever before, distributing an A/C unit to 733 families. We anticipate the need to be great again this year, as many families cope with the impacts of inflation.
