Our Director, Kent Beittel, is featured in “Scenes From The Front Lines Of Homelessness”, an article in March’s Columbus Monthly.
Homelessness often appears monolithic, entrenched and clouded by stereotypes. A closer look reveals an alarming spike in numbers, a system struggling to help—and the human face of unrelenting need.

Solomon Dean is our Deputy Director of Day Services. He has been with us for nearly 20 years. Solomon is definitely the “back bone”of our agency. Those we serve, the homeless & marginally housed, have grown to know him, respect him and value him as he helps them on a daily basis.
Karen Brown of ABC 6/FOX 28 recently profiled Solomon as part of their “On Your Side Champions” Series.

Help us & Solomon help the homeless & marginally housed in our community.

Thank You to Pastor Diane Thatcher, Meadow Park Church of God & it’s parishioners for supporting The Open Shelter and allowing us to be part of Faith Promise Sunday. Meadow Park has been a long-time supporter of our mission and those we serve.
Faith Promise monies are given to local, national and international ministries and missionaries with whom Meadow Park has built positive partnerships. A promise made in faith is not a pledge, but rather, it’s a promise – a step in faith to trust God for an amount of money and, then, wait patiently and confidently on Him to provide the funds.
One of the many ways Meadow Park helps is through it’s “Lunches Of Love” that is led by Terri Schoenberger. Terri, family & friends put together 200 delicious sack lunches for those we serve once a month. We and those we serve are grateful for this support.
