Seeds of Hope Inc. would like to thank everyone who attended the groundbreaking ceremony on May 24th 2017.

This was for the new family homeless shelter facility that will be built at 2170 Lunbeck Rd, Chillicothe Ohio 45601. This project represents a facility which will serve as Ross County’s only “Family Shelter” and will house 16 individuals at a time. The new 2,090 square foot facility will provide numerous services sponsored by United Way. There will be ongoing case management.  SOH will identify case-by-case, if clients need housing, recovery services, job skills training, life coaching, parenting classes and much more.  SOH are providers of the “Housing First” program through the State of Ohio, as well as partners with Fayette County CAC “Rapid Re-Housing program”.

Below is a list of churches, civic organizations, and contractors that have contributed $65,000 toward construction. Seeds of Hope still needs $15-20,000 to complete the build.  Ongoing funding is provided by United Way, small local grants, two annual fundraisers as well as many individual monthly donors.

There is currently an administrative office open Monday, Wednesday and Friday 10-2, with a 24-hour emergency call line.
