The Homeless Charity

Address
15 Broad Street
Akron, OH - 44305

The Homeless Charity seeks to meet the homeless where they are today to get them to where they want to go tomorrow by offering transitional support services that bridge the gap between street living and home living.
The Homeless Charity is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit located in Akron, OH with both a national interest and local focus on seeking innovative ways to end homelessness.
The Homeless Charity Day Center and Tent Village is a drug-free community for the homeless, run by the homeless. Our day center offers three meals a day, a food bank, laundry facilities, showers, bathrooms, internet cafe, drug rehab classes and meetings, a makers school and storage for belongings. Our tent village offers safe, stable transitional housing under homeless self governance — helping provide purpose, dignity, community and a path for reintegration into society.
Our tent village was recently made illegal by The City of Akron. We are considering all options available to us. In the meantime…
Moving forward we will offer:

    Transitional housing in tent city and in group homes, which provides the stop-gap sheltering service Akron’s homeless need as they wait for affordable housing. These transitional homes offer safe, stable housing under homeless self governance — helping provide purpose, dignity, community and a path for reintegration into society.
    Homeless Day Center in downtown Akron’s Middlebury neighborhood offers three meals a day, a food bank, laundry facilities, showers, bathrooms, internet cafe, drug rehab classes and meetings, a makers school and storage for belongings.
    Shuttle Service / Outreach offers rides to homeless people who often cannot afford a bus ticket or must travel far beyond bus routes. We give them rides to see doctors, therapists, drug rehab groups, housing managers, case workers, job interviews, to our day center and more. This service also takes us to people living in remote areas who are in needs of food, blankets, heaters, tarps, tents and other survival gear.
