- About Us
Ohio Valley Goodwill’s Special Projects team members recently moved into new offices at the Midtown Center located in the community of Roselawn. The expanded space will enable the Special Projects team to more efficiently serve the hundreds of individuals struggling with homelessness as well as our nation’s veterans that the organization has served for the past 25 years. The Special Projects team provides the following critical services through an assortment of federal grants including:
HUD Funded Rapid Re-Housing Services, Homeless Veterans Reintegration Projects (HVRP) and Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF).
The Goodwill Special Projects team works collaboratively with the Veterans Administration and Hamilton County Continuum of Care as well as homeless organizations in the Tri-State area to facilitate intakes for individuals in need of these services. For more specific information, please visit www.cincinnatigoodwill.org/services.
Goodwill’s new office space offers a pantry storage area for donated supplies in support of people struggling with homelessness; a computer learning classroom area; as well as office space for the many Employment Specialists working to help referred individuals to get jobs. The Special Projects programs were recently surveyed by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) which is the gold standard for organizations offering similar services; and no recommendations were received- a perfect survey outcome. This represents the fifth consecutive Three Year accreditation outcome with a perfect result for Ohio Valley Goodwill Industries, placing it in the top 3% of similar organizations nationally.
The Special Projects team serves almost 900 people annually and their mission is to help individuals to attain permanent housing and employment in the Greater Cincinnati community. “We are very proud of our staff team and the outcomes we are able to help the people we serve achieve,” said Camille Robinson, Special Projects Grants Manager.
