The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
To remove barriers to education for children and youth experiencing homelessness.
Faces without Places (FwP) provides educational and enrichment programming, school transportation and supplies, and other specialized services to thousands of children and youth experiencing homelessness each year in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky.
Believing education to be the key to breaking the cycle of homelessness and poverty, FwP’s primary goal is to provide school stability for the approximately 6,000 children experiencing homelessness each year in Greater Cincinnati. Although there are other social services that provide resources for families experiencing homelessness to obtain food, shelter, work, and childcare, we are the only local non-profit that focuses exclusively on the educational needs of children experiencing homelessness.
