Hello! Sorry for the delay in posts, as the title says we’ve been busy this summer here at the Center for Respite Care. Robin, our Program and Administrative Coordinator left in early August to persue a Master’s Degree at Ohio University.  Robin left behind some large shoes to be filled and our new Program and Administrative Coordinator Abi is up to the task.

Abi is a graduate of the University of Cincinnati where she majored in Communications and spent her senior year interning at Caracole, one of our Continuum of Care partner agencies. She has done over 1500 hours of volunteer work with AmeriCorps*NCCC and previously worked at Girl Scouts of Western Ohio as a Program Services Specialist and Development Specialist.

Also new to our staff is our Social Services Liason, Matt. Matt is also a graduate from the University of Cincinnati and has aspirations of going on to medical school in the future. Summer 2009 017





Matt is working closely with our Housing Coordinator, Melissa and our Nurse Manager, Millie to assure clients receive the proper benefits and secure housing.  With this help many of our clients are able to end the cycle of homelessness they have been stuck in.

We have also been busy spreading the world about the Center for Respite Care this summer. In August a few of our staff and board members attended two Reds games to man the Great American Insurance Group kiosk.  While there they talked with fans about respite and handed out information about how we serve the Greater Cincinnati area’s homeless population.
