Refreshing and Renewing People in Body, Mind and Spirit

We refresh and renew our guests in body and spirit from the hardships of living on the streets, in order to maintain and help restore the human dignity of all those we serve. Each of our guests leaves feeling better, knowing that "it is truly good for me to have been here." 

Last year our generous staff, volunteers and benefactors provided 19,841 showers to 1,704 brothers and sisters in need. 

Mary Magdalen House is located at 1223 Main Street just north of 12th Street in downtown Cincinnati. It is open daily except Sundays.

Who Experiences Homelessness?

There are many people who have common misconceptions of who the poor and homeless are. However, often the homeless are simply ordinary people much like you and I that have fallen upon extraordinarily hard times.
