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 a fan or air conditioner, children with asthma, the elderly, people with with respiratory issues, or people burdened by illness may face greater health risks.

St. Vincent de Paul’s Fan & A/C Distribution, presented by Braun Heating & Air Conditioning, helps alleviate the adverse impacts of high heat and humidity by providing free fans and air conditioners to neighbors across Hamilton County.

If you are in need of a fan or air conditioner, learn more about the distribution here and complete an application for an air conditioner here.

In 2022, we provided heat relief to more families than ever before, distributing a new fan or A/C unit to 2,502 families. We anticipate the need to be great again this year, as many families cope with the impacts of inflation.
