Jack’s Story

Dear Friend: “Don’t give my bed away.” Jack (pictured right) said on the phone to me as he was recovering in the hospital from his second stroke he suffered in shelter last August. These words broke my heart and I quickly reassured him that we would “never give his bed […]

We have much to be grateful for this past week. I would like to take a moment to recognize EMI Research Solutions! Last week, they held #Cincirumble which was a scavenger hunt to benefit ESNKY. Teams had 2 hours to accomplish as many of the 100 tasks with the goal to finish with the most points and win $500. Some of the tasks included finding a couple that had been married 40 years and take a picture of them kissing to answering 10 trivia questions to singing Karaoke. The tasks were hilarious, the teams that participated were from many different companies and many wore costumes! We were thrilled to find out that in the end EMI raised $3070 to donate to us and the winning team from Directions Research donated their $500 prize to us! We are incredibly grateful to CEO Michael Holmes and his entire staff at EMI, especially Tia & Brian! Thank you for believing that an "investment to ESNKY is an investment in our future". ...

The mural is complete! We are grateful to have been invited by Strategies to End Homelessness to participate in their project partnership with ArtWorks Cincinnati titled “Faces of Homelessness”. This project was designed to build awareness around the local prevalence of homelessness in Cincinnati (and they included us), build understanding of who is experiencing homelessness, and broaden support for the need for affordable housing for all Cincinnatians. In addition to being included, the world-renowned graffiti artists ICY+SOT, chose a guest of ESNKY, a Northern Kentuckian to be featured on this incredible mural.

The mural features photos to challenge you to rethink who is homeless. National data shows that on a single night in 2016, 549,928 people were experiencing homelessness in the United States. These people are our neighbors.

The mural is located at 1216 Vine Street, Cincinnati OH.

If you would like to donate to Emergency Shelter of NKY, visit our website at www.emergencyshelternky.org . $17 shelters one guest for night.
