Spring 2014


Dear Friend, 


I hope you have made it through this rough winter and are ready for spring and all the new beginnings that come along with it. Here at THI we are going through some changes. We have started to house male residents, as well as continuing to serve women and their families. We are also changing our housing model to permanent supportive housing, to better suit the needs of the homeless community. Also, stay tuned for a new organization name and logo! 


We are also preparing for our Run/Walk for Home 5K, which is on Saturday, May 31 at the Zoo. This is a great event for everyone! Participation in the event includes admission to the Zoo and Rainforest for the entire day, a t-shirt, continental breakfast, and entertainment! Also, instead of our Founder's Day Luncheon, we will be hosting our First Annual Home for All Ball on Saturday, November 15 at Windows on the River. We are looking forward to sharing our mission with old and new friends! 


As always, we thank you for your continued support! Please feel free to contact us with any questions or if you would like to tour our facility. Our doors are always open!

Executive Director


Adopt a Room Campaign
We created the Adopt a Room project in 2013 to help renovate and update resident rooms. Our community has stepped up and showed their support by adopting an entire room and parts of rooms. If interested, please click here for more information. 

the POWER of THI 


Marlena Smith was working two jobs and lost both of them within weeks of each other in January of 2013. While Marlena graduated from Bryant and Stratton College with her Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management, she still had a difficult time finding employment. With no income and a weak support network, Marlena was evicted from her home in September of 2013. After bouncing around at friends' homes, Marlena decided to go to Norma Herr Women's Shelter for five months before she was referred to THI on March 6, 2014. 


After going through the Workforce Readiness Workshop and being connected with several employers, Marlena was recently hired as Lead Server at Westin Hotel. Marlena credits THI for getting her back on her feet and employed. As for the future, Marlena hopes to move up at her new job, start her MBA at Cleveland State University, and continue working on her poetry.  Marlena is only one of the many examples of the POWER of THI.  Please stay tuned as we tell more success stories.
