The Salvation Army in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky meets daily with those who come to our Community Centers and Family Service Bureau (downtown) seeking various forms of assistance -- their needs are often basic.

They receive food from our pantries, clothing vouchers or bus tokens, or utility and rent assistance.  We manage their cases individually, as we seek opportunities to enrich their lives and empower them to become self-sufficient.

During the winter months, The Salvation Army in Cincinnati (Ohio counties only), administers the HeatShare program.  Through the generosity of Duke Energy and its customers, funds are made available to ensure local families don't lose their electric, and thus their heat, during the cold winter months.  For more information on HeatShare, follow this link.

Services to families and individuals are provided regardless of race, creed, color, sex, religious affiliation or age, consistent with the Mission of Helping OthersThe Salvation Army.  Clients may be self-referred or referred by agencies, friends, relatives or other interested parties. Walk-ins are received based on the schedule at each Community Center.
