In 1988, Sister Dorothy Kammerer founded Homefull (then called “The Other Place”), which continues to receive support from the CPPS Heritage Mission Fund. Homefull works to end homelessness by providing housing, services, advocacy and education in both western Ohio and St. Louis, Missouri. In 2017, Homefull provided assistance to nearly 4,500 people throughout its different programs.
In Findlay, Ohio, Hope House celebrated Founders Day on Nov 19. In 1990, Hope House was founded by Precious Blood Sisters as a shelter to house 10 women and their children. It is now composed of several housing programs and assists with securing safe and affordable housing for over 7,000 individuals each year.
