Emergency Shelter

Are you experiencing homelessness and ready to make a change? New people walk through the doors of City Gospel Mission every day. You can too. You don’t have to face these challenges alone. We’re here to help!

We have safe and clean shelter with 74 beds for men in a Christian environment where we treat each other with the dignity and respect we all deserve. Men in our shelter have access to case management, 3 meals a day, showers, a nurse clinic 2 days a week, and enrichment classes.

For help in locating shelter in Hamilton County, please call the CAP line (Central Access Point) at (513) 381-7233. CAP accepts calls from 9:00 a.m.-8:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Our shelter, like many others in Cincinnati, is often full.
