The Upward Spiral Starts Here

It’s a pattern we see every day, and it happens all too often in Cincinnati. The loss of a job, a medical crisis, even car trouble sets off a chain reaction. One difficulty leads to another, creating crises for those without a safety net. That doesn’t have to be the outcome. Sometimes, hope arrives in the form of neighbors. Our network of volunteers gets personally involved with people at the intersection where their lives could improve or tragically spiral downward.

Since 1869, we’ve been a source of hope and help that people count on. Now, in response to the needs of our community, we are compelled to evolve so that we can have the greatest impact. With your help, we can move upward together.
