A house is the basis for a home, it's the structure inside where our lives unfold; where we nurture our children, face our challenges and celebrate our milestones. For a house to become a home it must be safe, decent, affordable - and available. In Ohio, more affordable housing is badly needed. Last year, approximately 150,000 Ohioans were homeless. More than 40 percent of Ohio renters cannot afford the fair-market rent of a two-bedroom unit; and foreclosures totaled nearly 90,000 in 2009. It was the 14th consecutive year of record breaking foreclosure numbers. At Adams County Homeless Shelter (ACSH) we believe that everybody should have a home.  ACSH supports a range of housing assistance services in Ohio, including homeless prevention, rapid re-housing, and finding permanent affordable housing with linkages to supportive services, as needed. Since 1995, ACSH has worked on behalf of the homeless in need of emergency shelter; hoping that someday they will find shelter that can become lasting homes filled with life's possibilities.
