Help young people on the road to a bright future

We give at-risk children caring, enduring, one-to-one relationships that change their lives. Are you interested in becoming a mentor? Just a few hours each week can make a big difference in the life of a child. Or maybe you’d like to invest in a child’s future with a gift that supports our mentoring program. Your gift will help provide a carefully trained, screened and matched mentor for a child. Our mentors help children envision a better future, improve communication with their families and friends and feel loved and supported. But it doesn’t stop there. City Gospel Mission provides our mentors with ongoing support, training, coaching and resources to help make the mentoring relationship long-lasting.

Our Approach

We care about Cincinnati’s children and their future. We offer a wide variety of programs for youth, but most importantly, we help establish and support relationships between youth and Christ-centered, caring mentors. We seek to be personally accessible to support mentors, and help mentors make the deepest most long-lasting impact possible in a child’s life.
