About Us

The SHP Cincinnati East was formed in January 2024 to help kids living in Hamilton County. We have gotten off to a great start thanks to generous donors and volunteers! We’ve acquired the use of a large warehouse, purchased needed tools, and have a nifty trailer. We are developing a growing Core Team, have held several build days and have a full slate of sponsored builds happening this summer, and we have held multiple delivery days to help kids get a brand new beds.
Interested in joining us? We need volunteers to give their time build beds and delivering beds. We need people with skills who can share their talent and join us in a leadership capacity, and we need folks willing to share their treasure by making a financial or in-kind gift (new bedding, lumber, hardware, etc…).
If you would like to join us in in anyway, click the various links on this page. If you know of a company, church, school or foundation that would like to help us, or if you have any other questions, reach out to todd.forman@shpbeds.org.
Thank you!

Our organization is dependent on and designed around community involvement. We provide an opportunity for the community to come together and embrace these children in need.

Want to be more involved?

Critical to our success is our core team. Our core team is a group of volunteers that take on a leadership role during our builds and deliveries. At a bed build, they simply provide instruction to our volunteers, oversee tasks and answer questions. It's really easy and no experience or skills are needed, you simply need a big heart and attention to detail. There is no set commitment, if you can help once every month or two that's great, once or twice a month even better. Our events usually take place on Saturday's anytime between 8 am and 3 pm. So what do you think? If you want to join our team or if have more questions click the button below and a member of our team will get in touch with you.
