CITY GOSPEL MISSION
The City Gospel Mission’s former shelter facility was located on Elm Street in Over-the-Rhine. Limited space and a landlocked site required their clients to wait outside the facility each afternoon for a chance to receive food and shelter, and to exit again in the morning. The new facility on Dalton Street houses 74 emergency beds for men; 36 transitional housing beds in a separate building for the Exodus Recovery program; improved sleeping arrangements offering more privacy; full day services with programming that eliminates forced exit during daytime hours; an increased ratio of case workers to residents; and shared facilities with both a physical training and employment agency.
City Gospel Mission is part of the five-facility system called for in Cincinnati’s Homeless to Homes Plan, which aims to provide comprehensive services necessary for homeless individuals to obtain and maintain housing.
