OUR Home Family Resource Center has been recommended by Catholic leaders in the Mercer/Auglaize County area as “an effective means to alleviate poverty and hunger in (our) local neighborhoods,” leading the Catholic Social Action Office to award the agency a grant of $650.

During Lent, a traditional time of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving before Easter, parishes, schools and households in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati participated in the Rice Bowl program.  Along with international humanitarian efforts, a part of the proceeds from that effort are awarded to agencies such as OUR Home which have provided and continue to provide essential services that alleviate poverty and hunger.

The grant will be used in OUR Home’s Direct Services program, which provides food, personal care items, and over $20,000 of emergency financial assistance to local families and individuals each year.
