Interfaith Hospitality Network of Greater Cincinnati (IHNGC) provides Emergency Shelter and housing programs for homeless families in Cincinnati, Ohio and surrounding areas. IHNGC provides the tools, resources, and support that families need to overcome homelessness and achieve long-term stability.

In 2014, IHNGC established the Pet Support program to extend care to four-legged family members, allowing children and parents who become homeless to keep their dog, cat and/or small companion animals with them during their shelter stay rather than surrendering them to animal shelters or leaving them behind. The program provides a safe, on-site kenneling option for beloved family pets to stay alongside their human family as they work to regain stability.
