Working together. Reducing poverty. Changing lives.
CityLink is a city-wide initiative started by a group of social service agencies who recognized the need for integrated services. The founding partners reached out to the faith-based community for support in realizing their vision. CityLink leverages the strengths of various social service agencies in Cincinnati and continues to build support from a broad base of faith-based, corporate, foundation and individual supporters.
CityLink opened its doors in October of 2012 and officially launched in January of 2013, read more about our progress. We serve adults and their families from throughout the Greater Cincinnati region. This is a true collaboration where the sum of our efforts is great than the total of our individual parts.
