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.
