Any comments about your selections you would like to share with the student philanthropists?
Cincinnati Union Bethel, the longest continuously operating social service agency in Cincinnati, was founded in 1830. The agency’s first programs were provided to boatmen and their families traveling the Ohio River. As Cincinnati Union Bethel moved from riverboats to its first settlement house, services were added to meet the growing needs of Cincinnati families. CUB pioneered the first free kindergarten, the first free health clinic, the first dormitory at the University of Cincinnati and the first women’s residence facility, the Anna Louise Inn, built in 1909. In 2012, Cincinnati Union Bethel provided services to over 1,000 individuals in the areas of early childhood education, housing, and supportive services for survivors of human trafficking, exploitation and woman recovering from substance abuse. Currently, in 2020, CUB continues to remain relevant and keep up with the changing needs in our community. Pervasive poverty, especially for single female led households, mental health instability, drug addiction and lack of social justice and equity are some of the major issues plaguing our community today. In response to those community needs, currently CUB runs three programs: The Anna Louise Inn, now an affordable housing building that provides supportive services designed to empower woman to retain housing, and find emotional stability and self-sufficiency; Off The Streets, a shelter for woman recovering from drug addiction and who have survived the horrors of human trafficking; and our newest program, the Cincinnati Scholar House, an affordable housing program with supportive services and onsite child development center designed to empower single parents, who are also full time students to complete their education, break the cycle of poverty and create a sustainable future for themselves and their children. CUB’s vision is a community of resilient women who have the skills and confidence to thrive.
