Feeding 200 people each and evey day is a daunting task. Especially at this time of year when many of our diners come through our door damp and chilled. Our mission is to offer these folks, whose best day is a trying one, a delicious meal, prepared with love and served with dignity in an atmosphere of hospitality and relaxation. Those who arrive are never asked to sign in, register, present identificaion, or pay a single penny. They simply come in and enjoy a full, hot nutritious meal.
Founded by Sister Mary Dorgan, CDP in the Fellowship Hall of the First Church of the Nazarene in 1991, Henry Hosea House was built on bringing the northern Kentucky/Cincinnati communities together to serve the needy, elderly and homeless. Additionally, we have dedicated nurses and physicians who come once a month to provide miscellaneous services, and Henry Hosea House continues to reach out to the less fortunate by partnering with community members to create Thanksgiving food Baskets as well as the Christmas Adopt-A-Family program.
While hunger is certainly an issue with the poor and homeless in our community, a further cause of suffering, we believe, comes from the three plaques of loneliness, helplessness and boredom. We do our best to combat these by treating each, and every person entering Hosea House as if they were dining in a fine restaurant.
More than three hundred volunteers support the work of Hosea House. This amazing involvement allows us to serve each meal at a cost of approximately $3.00. You can help us continue serving our community's less fortunate by donating today. Buy a meal, or ten. or?
