Our preschoolers love books and stories. This week they had special guests, Cincinnati Union Bethel board members, lead their storytime. We know the board members enjoyed it as much as the kids. Check out the pictures!
This week is National Volunteer Week and we want to thank the many people who support our mission, often by doing not-so-glamorous work behind the scenes. Your dedication is so valuable to CUB and our clients. Thank you!
This March, the Martha Kidd Foundation presented a check for $1,000 to the Off the Streets program to help fund a professional facilitator to help women engaged in prostitution seek recovery, safety and community reintegration.
Thank you so much to everyone who participated in our Voices from the Heart raffle! Your contribution goes to support the Off the Streets program so that we can continue to help women gain the self-esteem they need to make positive life changes that benefit themselves and our community. See who our lucky winners were!
Instead of venturing out for Voices from the Heart, this year, we'd like you to enjoy Valentine's Day at home and support Off the Streets through our raffle. You could win $500 in gift cards, an iPad Air, trips to Michigan, Tennessee, Hilton Head or New York City, or a delicious dinner from Jeff Thomas Catering.
Thank you to everyone who came to the groundbreaking for the new Anna Louise Inn on Thursday, January 30th, at the United Way. We appreciate that it was a packed crowd as we begin this exciting new chapter in the Inn's history.

On Wednesday, October 23, 2013, the children at our Winton Early Learning Academy got to pretend to be cats and dogs as part of their reading of Claire Masurel's A Cat and a Dog. A group of actors as part of Books in Action helped bring the book to life for them.
The Northern Kentucky University Social Work Program hosted a shopping giveaway for the residents of the Anna Louise Inn, providing personal care items, make-up, clothing, and purses for free. They also served a pizza lunch. It was a wonderful day for the residents of the Inn!
The OTS women, a group of volunteers, a graduate, and a facilitator visited the Cincinnati Art Museum in Eden Park on Friday, September 27th. The women had never been and really enjoyed seeing the art and being with each other for the afternoon.
