For far too long, the city of Cincinnati has suffered from immense need. Today, nearly one in three city residents live in poverty. Cincinnati currently ranks sixth among all major U.S. cities for child poverty. Our city’s infant mortality rate persists at a rate over twice the national average.
But, Cincinnati, as we know, is not defined by these statistics. It is a place of pride and identity. It is a city built on the character, tenacity, and generosity of its people — rooted in a deep and unrelenting sense of community.
Our Bonds of Union team is unwavering in its commitment to increase opportunity and improve outcomes for all of Cincinnati’s young people. Through our efforts, we are determined to uplift our children, our families, and our neighborhoods. We aim to create an intensive, holistic support system for our children and families, and we aspire to engage the entire Greater Cincinnati community in this mission.
It is in this spirit that we invite you to learn more about our work and join our efforts.
