Maslow's Army a 501 (c) 3 non- profit founded in October of 2016. We work on an emergency basis to help those experiencing homelessness. Over the last three years Maslow's Army has been serving our area's homeless population. Individuals expericing homeless have been housed in hotel rooms, provided meals, and provided resources to obtain permanent stable housing. In order to keep our mission, we need your help! Please consider a donation to Maslow's Army Inc.
We are officially opening Maslow's Army's Day Center after years of tireless nights, planning, and strategizing the city of Cincinnati will now have a Day Center for those experiencing homelessness.
The Day Center will be located at the Old Queen's Gate Jail at 516 Linn Street, Cincinnati, OH.
We will be open seven days a week from 9am to 5pm. Lunch will be provided daily in partnership with Our Daily Bread. Peer support/Navigational Specialist will be available to lend and help those experiencing homelessness by sharing testimonials on how they overcame addiction, mental health issues, and systemic poverty to become healthy productive members of society. Our peers will also connect those in need to vital resources in our area such as referrals to detox, mental health services, and much more.
There are many gap's in homeless services during the day. Maslow's Army Day Center will ensure that individuals experiencing homelessness have somewhere warm to go during the day. Many times those experiencing homelessness will walk into stores, libraries, and restaurants to seek a moment of warmth before being forced to go back into the city streets to endure the frigid winter temperatures. The pandemic of covid-19 has limited those opportunities to those living on the city streets. Maslow's Army Day Center will enable those to no longer dread the bitter temperatures but to find hope and a warm place to begin to dream again of a bigger and brighter tomorrow!
Many Thanks to our generous donors and supporters!

During the course of the Covid-19 pandemic Maslow's Army sheltered over 261 individuals, families, and veterans expericing homelessness.
The individuals that were placed into hotel rooms also had regular health screenings, daily temperature checks, and 3 meals a day served by our amazing volunteers.
We don't know how many lives this program saved but we know it made a tremendous impact. Especially for those most vulnerable!
For the past 13 weeks Maslow's Army has been housing individuals and families (252) in area hotels. We believe that it is so important to engage with each guest and to do socially involved activities. 30 children and 10 adults including chaperones will be took part in Maslow's Army Cincinnati Zoo Day!
The Cincinnati Zoo will be hosted Maslow's Army for an exciting educational day of fun. There was also an official Hamilton County Sheriff's Department police escort (with lights) to the Zoo. The first stop was at the Hippo statue. Our guide lead us to the Africa Deck where we were treated to an amazing LaRosa's Pizza lunch donated by our partners, LaRosa Pizzeria.
Special Thanks to The Hamilton County Sheriff's Department, The LaRosa Family, The Cincinnati Zoo, Microtel Hotel, Brian Garry and Samuel Landis of Maslow's Army as well as all who have put this special day together!!!
