FOUND HOUSE MISSION

Found House Interfaith Housing Network’s mission is to provide homeless families emergency shelter and hospitality through interfaith communities and to work with families to find and retain stable housing.

Found House provides emergency shelter and housing programs for homeless families in Cincinnati, Ohio and surrounding areas. For the past 30 years, Found House IHN has been a beacon of hope for families in our community with nowhere else to turn. Found House remains focused on our overarching goal of helping families experiencing homelessness secure safe, affordable, permanent housing with the key organizational goals to:

  • Keep families together during the crisis of homelessness;
  • Help families re-establish long-term, safe, affordable housing;
  • Reduce the rate of recidivism (returns to homelessness);
  • Reduce the impact of the trauma of homelessness on children, pets, and their caregivers.

At Found House Interfaith Housing Network, we are family. We serve families in need – whatever they look like, whatever the composition, even four-legged, dog and cat family members. Our partner, faith communities volunteer as families – moms, dads, kiddos, putting their faith in action, serving and eating meals with families that are not so different from them, save for housing insecurity. And we form family as a community, across diverse faiths and experiences, united in our conviction that housing is a basic right and each of us has a role to play in making sure everyone gets to exercise and enjoy that right.
