The mission of Cincinnati Union Bethel is to provide supportive services and education that assist urban women, children, families, and communities to realize their greatest potential.
Cincinnati Union Bethel (CUB), the longest operating social service agency in Cincinnati, was founded in 1830. In 2011, CUB provided services to over 1,080 individuals in Greater Cincinnati in the areas of early childhood education, housing, and supportive services for victims of prostitution:
Early Childhood Education: CUB Early Learning Academies operate four Head Start preschools that prepare low-income 3- to 5-year old children physically, socially, and academically for successful entry into the education system. In addition to educating children, the program provides supportive services to their families.
Housing: The Anna Louise Inn provides safe, convenient, and affordable housing for low-income women.
Women’s Support Services: Off the Streets SM (OTS), a peer-driven community collaborative, provides coordinated services for prostituted women so they can move toward safety, recovery, and community reintegration. OTS facilitates nontraditional group therapy, provides housing, and connects women with other community resources such as medical care, employment, and education.
