Give Back Tuesday: UpSpring 4/24


WOW! What a fun afternoon with Renee, Lilly and Linsey from UpSpring!

So what is UpSpring?

It’s the region’s only non-profit exclusively serving the educational needs of homeless children and youth. They provide these students with the consistency needed to achieve academic success and become well-rounded, active participants in their community.

Nearly half of children in the greater Cincinnati area live in poverty – between the 2nd and 4th worst rate in the country.

UpSpring provides afterschool programs, lunches, tutors and mentors to those children…. And boy do they have a good time! 😉

Each year UpSpring empowers the lives of approximately 3,500 children experiencing homelessness in our region – AMAZING!

In 2017, UpSpring held its 20th annual summer program in Cincinnati & its second year in Northern Kentucky!
