We are so grateful to have local companies that support ESNKY. Today we are spotlighting CAI Insurance Agency Inc.. for raising enough money to fully fund all the operating expenses tonight in shelter. It means the heat and lights stay on, water & sewer for the laundry & showers and for an advocate to be in the shelter to take care of everyone. In addition to fully funding tonight’s expenses, they have provided meals every month, collected supplies and material donations to make sure the basic necessities are met for every guest. Thank you to CAI Insurance Agency for being part of our ESNKY family.

If you or your company would like more information on what it means to fully fund one night in shelter, please email info@esnky.net.

Something so simple as a glass of milk. Something so difficult for a shelter to have a consistent supply of. Something our guests at ESNKY don't go without because of United Dairy Farmers. Once again UDF provided 20 gallons of milk to our guests each and every week this winter. Our guests are guaranteed the nutritous benefits of milk each night with dinner and breakfast. Thank you UDF for your continued support. We are very much grateful to have you in our ESNKY family. ... See MoreSee Less

Flapjack Classic 2017 was a log splitting success! Tim & Jena McClanahan opened their house & backyard for the most unique event I have ever been to. Their friends and familiy came together and had contests which involved axes & saws in their own backyard. They also served flapjacks for breakfast! The event raised over $1700 for ESNKY and will ensure that 100 guests will receive one night in shelter. I am attaching a few of the pictures, but to really understand the scope head over to their event page bit.ly/Flapjack2017 to see all the pictures! And yes, I really did hit a bullseye! ...

What happens when the washer goes down in shelter last Friday? It means no showers, linens and guest clothes once all the clean stuff is used up on Sunday. What else happens? Community partners come together and help us out. Last night, we were able to use the Hampton Inn Cincinnati Riverfront washers and dryers so we could at least resume showers for the guests and continue bed linen changes because of a connection. Guess what else happens - our vendor Machinex, goes above and beyond to get the part ordered quickly. Today the washing machine is back up and running and we can resume laundering guests clothes. ...
