As Cincinnati's largest homeless shelter, the Drop Inn Center never turns anyone away. We feed, clothe and shelter 222 people a day as well as operate an outpatient  recovery program, and transitional and permanent supportive housing. Generous donations – of time, talent and treasure – are the vital elements that keep the Drop Inn Center open each and every day and enable us to care for our city's homeless citizens.

The need for food, clothing and toiletries is continuous – many of our residents come to us empty-handed, in need not only of shelter, but of basic possessions and sustenance as well. From socks and shoes to soap and sunscreen, we always welcome donations of new clothing and grooming accessories. Your gift of food items is also welcome – such as bulk quantities of canned or dry goods in addition to gift certificates to price clubs or supermarkets. Please call 513-721-0643 x101 to donate goods.
