Putting God’s love into action by feeding, housing, serving and
otherwise caring for the community outside our doors.
Findlay Street Neighborhood House
Findlay Street Neighborhood House is a community gathering spot, advocacy & support center, after-school safe haven, recreation hub, and food pantry serving residents of Cincinnati’s West End. St. Barnabas provides volunteers and funds to support summer camp and holiday outreach programs.
Kairos Prison Ministry
Kairos brings the Gospel to inmates with twice-yearly weekend retreats and ongoing prayer meetings. St. Barnabas supports this ministry with prayer support and by baking many dozens of cookies to share with participating inmates.
NEEDS (Northeast Emergency Distribution Services)
Needs is a coalition of area churches and civic organizations that provides emergency food, utility assistance and back-to-school aid to families in northeast Hamilton County.
Found House Cincinnati (formerly IHN)
Found House partners with an interfaith network of churches to provide emergency shelter and meals for homeless families, and works with those families to help them find and retain stable housing. Several times a year, St. B volunteers assist with meals and hospitality.
Kroger / Pipkins & Findlay Street Food Rescue
5 days a week, St. Barnabas volunteers pick up near-expired produce, meat and bakery items from the Montgomery Kroger and deliver it to the food pantry at Findlay St. Neighborhood House. This provides a double benefit: providing food to families who need it, and reducing food waste.
Operation Give Back
Operation Give Back provides a food pantry, after-school tutoring, and summer programs for families that need assistance in the Sycamore school district. St. Barnabas assists with fundraising, back-to-school programs and holiday outreach.
Habitat for Humanity of Greater Cincinnati
Habitat is a non-profit Christian housing ministry that partners with prospective homeowners to help them build safe & affordable housing. Our St. Barnabas volunteers assist with 2-3 new home builds each year.
Matthew 25 Ministries
Matthew 25 accepts product donations of misprinted, slightly damaged, overstocked or gently used items that are then repackaged and sent to poor communities and disaster victims around the world. We participate in several work events each year where volunteers sort and package items for re-use.
