The Kenton County FOP #20 & Kenton County Dispatch work so hard to keep us safe in the community. Today they surprised us with some wonderful items and thanked us for what we do. It's all of us working together to make sure in this cold weather we get as many people into shelter as possible. Thank you KC Dispatch & FOP #20, the notes written were so very appreciated! ...

What does a key symbolize to you? For this specific guest in our Transitional Housing Program, it means an apartment to go to. A place to call his own. A place where his kids can now visit him. A place where he can cook & eat what he wants, when he wants. A bed he can lay his head down with his own blanket and pillow. Privacy. Security. Home.

We look at keys every single day and don't think a thing about it. As you drive home or unlock a door, I challenge you to think about your keys. Then think what this one key means to this guy.

Would you donate $17 for one guy in our Transitional Housing Program to sleep in shelter tonight? We have 12 guys still in the program that need your help.

Thank you to everyone who made a donation to ESNKY #givingtuesday16 event. Tonight we have 71 guests in the building and they received a hearty spaghetti dinner dinner, some took advantage of a shower (remember we only have 1), some took advantage of the opportunity to get their clothes laundered and have clothing needs met. More importantly- ALL are inside tonight. Thank you for keeping our lights on. ... See MoreSee Less

Did you know that we had 115 men enter our Summer Transitional Recovery Program? These are men that were tired of being homeless and serious about getting into permanent housing. To date, 86 men have received a key to their own place. Your $17 donation enables us to cover the cost of one night for each of those guys in our shelter until they were able to move out on their own. These men took ownership for their emotional, physical and spiritual well being. They found jobs, paid child support, maintained sobriety and found housing. Please donate and make a difference in your community. bit.ly/giveTues16ESNKY #givetuesday16 #esnky #homer ... See MoreSee Less
