CUB’s Growing Hope – Episode 3
In this months episode, Anna Louise Program Coordinator Sean Guilfoile, sits down with one of the ALI residents, Tia.
The Anna Louise Inn has been providing safe and affordable housing for single women since 1909. It is a safe harbor, offering a community of women a sense of home. Often our residents have nowhere else to go, and we provide the stability they need to offer them hope and independence.
The 85 rooms at the Anna Louise Inn in Mt. Auburn are individual efficiency apartments with a full kitchen, bedroom, furniture and bathroom. All rooms have their own thermostats and intercom systems for comfort and security. Amenities include an outdoor garden with pavilion, vending room, coin-operated laundry, lounges including a library and exercise room, and mere steps to a Metro line.
CUB’s Growing Hope – Episode 2
In this months episode, Family & Community Engagement Manager, Tara Meacham, has a conversation with a parent of one of our Early Learning Academies students.
Our Early Childhood Education program is based on the premise that all children share common needs, and that children of low-income families, in particular, can benefit most from a comprehensive developmental program designed to meet those needs and hopefully break the cycle of poverty.
Cincinnati Union Bethel runs four Head Start preschools that prepare children 3-5 years old for kindergarten. Our Early Childhood Education program provides a rich variety of activities that foster the intellectual, physical, mental, emotional and social development of each child, while also supporting the family.
CUB’s Growing Hope – Episode 1
In this months episode, we listen in on a conversation between a current Off the Streets client and a former Off the Streets Client turned employee.
The Mission of Off the Streets is to assist women who have been victims of human trafficking, sexual exploitation, and prostitution to move toward safety, recovery, empowerment, and community reintegration.
Our program recognizes the significant trauma victims have experienced and guides them on a path to a healthy and productive lifestyle. Victims are provided immediate housing and are connected to other existing services in the community that can address their needs. Located in Hamilton County, Ohio, Off the Streets is a local collaborative effort with the police department, criminal justice system, local government, health care providers, substance abuse and mental health treatment providers, and more than 50 nonprofit agencies.
