We fight poverty with love

By providing programs that serve the body, mind and soul, The Salvation Army helps alleviate the symptoms of poverty - and works to address the root issues that cause it.

How we help Equip Families

The Salvation Army in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky offers a helping hand for those who need a little nudge.  Helping in a practical way is how we believe we do the most good.  The following programs are available to residents who are in need of emergency assistance:


Rent Assistance

When you don’t know where the money for your next rent payment is coming from, check with your local Salvation Army to see if funding is available for rent assistance. This type of funding ebb and flows, but if we can help, we will.

Those seeking assistance should call 513-762-5660, to schedule an in-person visit with a trained staff member.

Shelter and Housing

We welcome women and children into The Salvation Army to get out of the bitter cold, intense heat, heavy rains, or just to have a safe and quiet place to spend the night. Our shelter is trauma informed with an emphasis on respect.

If you are seeking emergency shelter, call 513-381-SAFE (513-381-7233). Once in the shelter, you will meet with a social worker to develop a service plan and assistance that may include employment or training programs, money management and life skills.

Utility Assistance

During a long, cold winter, your heat bill swells and you receive a notice from your energy provider that all utilities will be disconnected unless you can pay the overdue balance. Or, maybe a job loss forced you to choose between paying rent or paying your electric bill. We can help.

Those seeking assistance should call 513-762-5660, to schedule an in-person visit with a trained staff member.

Rapid Re-Housing

Rapid re-housing provides short-term rental assistance and services. The goals are to help people obtain housing quickly, increase self- sufficiency, and stay housed. 

With long term care management designed to transition clients from emergency shelter to permanent housing.

Those seeking housing assistance should call 513-762-5660, to schedule an in-person visit with a trained staff member.

Holiday Assistance

Every year, parents must choose between giving their children gifts or paying bills. Individuals facing poverty often spend the holidays without the warmth of a shared meal or even a support system. 

From gifts for children in need to special meals for those who would otherwise go without fellowship on the holidays and meeting other basic needs - we aim to bring joy back into the season.

Alleviate Hunger

We feed people daily, including the most vulnerable of our communities — underserved children in our after-school programs, the elderly at our Senior Center, women and children at our homeless shelters, people looking to better their lives at our addiction recovery facilities, survivors rebuilding their lives after a disaster, and victims of human trafficking.

Salvation Army food pantries provide groceries for families and individuals in need. Food offered at no-charge to the clients.

Those seeking assistance should call 513-762-5660.
