Learn more about Maslow's Army and our mission to help those in need!
Our mission at Maslow' s Army is to help provide the essential tools needed to become healthy productive members of society.
Maslow's Army is a 501 (C)3 Non- Profit
Through setting and accomplishing goals these men and women are then in the position to reach out to those still battling addiction, alcoholism and mental illnesses. We at Maslow's Army take a special interest in our veterans and families with children, they are our top priority.
Our volunteers work around the clock. Each person is taken through a 5-step process which starts with meeting the basic needs, this allows us to help with their personal securities, relationships, self-esteem and finally self-actualization. Through this peer driven system, those who have once found their situation to be hopeless will come to realize that change is possible.
Our end vision is to offer hope to the cities less fortunate and homeless population by providing the skills needed to become self sufficient. By sharing our personal experiences we gain their confidence. What makes us unique is the fact that we meet each person hassle-free and without an appointment. Being homeless is a situation, not an identity. We communicate with each client on a personal level. We listen to their wants and needs. We walk them through a system of setting goals based on their strengths and interests. We call this our "Pie System". Each time an individual client sets a goal, we help them to accomplish their goal by a series of smaller goals we call "Pie Slices".
This helps the individual gain self-esteem and motivation. We are one of the very few that treat the disease and not just the symptoms. "If you put a band-aid over the problem, the problem still exists".
Maslow's Army is a group of volunteers who go directly on the streets of Cincinnati to help meet the basic human needs of those experiencing homelessness and poverty. Every single Sunday for 92 consecutive Sunday's Maslow's Army has handed out La Rosa's Pizza, bottled water, pop, fruit, dessert, hygiene products, new and gently used clothing, and has provided haircuts all for free to those to those experiencing homelessness and poverty.
Founder's Samuel and Susan Landis both experienced homelessness at different points in their lives. Samuel was homeless for 20 years in the downtown streets of Cincinnati. Samuel and Susan having been able to overcome homelessness and addiction decided to use their experience to provide 24-7 peer support to those in need.
The Maslow's Army Basic Needs Outreach is a way to meet those experiencing homelessness where they are at in hopes of them reaching out through the week. Through the week Maslow's Army peer support directs those in need to the resources in our area to help these individuals become self sufficient.
