Helping Hand

Serve City is an outreach center in Hamilton, Ohio, dedicated to serving the needs of Butler County's low-income and homeless individuals and families, offering help and hope to our neighbors in need. 

"Serve City saved my life. I was an addict and homeless for 15 years

but Serve City invited me in, cared for me, showed me the way to go. Today I am clean and sober, I have a great job, a family who loves me and a place to call my own. None of this would have been possible without Serve City."

- Bobby B.

Our Process

Connect 1 on 1, then Connect to Resources

Serve City understands that everyone's story is different, so cookie-cutter approaches are not effective.  We meet our neighbors right where they are, create a safe space for them to share their hopes and dreams, challenges and obstacles.  Then we work with them to develop a comprehensive "Move Forward" plan designed to connect them with community resources like health care, housing, employment, a faith community, support networks, government and private resources, and many others while supporting and empowering them all along the way.
