Homeless Services

Homeless Shelter

The HIT Foundation began offering Homeless Services for Preble County residents in March, 2015. In October, 2015 the Foundation opened its Homeless Services Shelter. The Shelter serves as a temporary housing facility for homeless clients in Preble County.

Clients meet regularly with shelter staff and a case manager to work toward their housing needs. They are expected to meet weekly goals focusing on housing, in order to obtain housing with 30-45 days. Clients are also expected to follow a daily schedule and must agree to adhere to shelter rules.

Cold Shelter

The Cold Shelter may be available from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. when the temperature/wind chill is forecast to be 20 degrees or below. The shelter may be available when the temperature/wind chill is 21-32 degrees, provided there is a need and available volunteers.

Guests will be provided dinner and breakfast along with a bedroll/cot and hygiene products. When they leave in the morning they will also receive a bag lunch.

Call the HIT Foundation at (937) 472-0500 or (937) 733-4305 to reserve a bed.
