Discover how your support changes lives.
Since 1947, we have been serving people in need by rescuing the downtrodden, restoring hope to the hopeless, and releasing God’s greatness into our community.
Cherry Street has served individuals who are homeless and poor in Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year–since 1947.
30% percent of all hours worked at Cherry Street are put in by volunteers from our community who believe in what we are doing.
Everyday we provide hundreds of men and women a good meal, clean clothing, job-readiness traning, and basic necessities.
We are only able to meet the needs of the people we serve, because of the generous support of people like you.
Do you have questions about the services we provide or how you can get involved with caring for the homeless and poor in Toledo?
