ESTHER MARIE HATTON CENTER FOR WOMEN
Formerly known as the Drop In Center, Shelterhouse has been serving homeless women for over three decades, yet had previously never had a facility in which to serve only women. In this new facility, named the Esther Marie Hatton Center for Women, Shelterhouse is able to ensure women have access to basic human needs such as shelter, food, clothing, and toiletries, and then begin to define reasonable steps toward independence and self-sufficiency. The new facility supports the basic needs for food, shelter, and safety; reduced trauma and optimized women’s health; additional shelter beds; full-day treatment services tailored to the specific needs of individual women; high-quality individualized case management; and a parking facility that supports the demands of the shelter, the Anna Louise Inn, and the neighboring United Way Facility.
The Esther Marie Hatton Center 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.
