We exist to touch lives by offering dignity and hope through hygiene and sharing God’s love. As part of this work, we help people earn self-sufficiency, which can transform them from being at risk to thriving in life.

Our Mission

Our Impact

Thousands of people in Central Ohio live without basic hygiene products. They face the difficult choice between purchasing these products and covering other essential costs such as bills, food, and medicine. We’re here to provide the help, hygiene, and hope that can produce real life for our neighbors by removing barriers that prevent them from flourishing in everyday life.
