FACING THE CHALLENGE

More than half of children in the greater Cincinnati area live in poverty - the second worst rate in the country. Many of these children are homeless, and the odds are stacked against them. 

HELPING KIDS THRIVE

As the region's only non-profit exclusively serving the educational needs of homeless children and youth, UpSpring provides these students with the consistency needed to achieve academic success and become well-rounded, active participants in their community. A consistent education breaks the cycle of childhood homelessness and elevates kids, families, & communities

TRANSFORMING OUTCOMES

Since our founding in 1998, we've elevated more than 40,000 children experiencing homelessness. Each year UpSpring empowers the lives of approximately 3,000 children experiencing homelessness in our region.
