David Mann Attended the Ribbon Cutting of Maslow’s Army’s Day Center and Is Proud Of the Small Part He Had to Play In Its Opening…
“There are no more rewarding experiences, as a Council-member, than participating [in the ribbon cuttings of organizations like] Maslow’s Army’s Day Center. This Center, only one of 6 like it in the Nation, will be open seven days a week from 9:00 to 5:00, serving lunch (thanks to Our Daily Bread) and provide a computer lab to people experiencing homelessness. A lot of work by many people was necessary to create this center, so properly named the “Todd B. Portune Winter Day Center.” But what was also necessary was the advocacy and support of Cincinnati City Council. I am proud for having been a (small) part of the extraordinary achievement.” – David Mann
About Maslow’s Army’s Day Center
After years of tireless nights, planning, and strategizing the city of Cincinnati will now have a Day Center for those experiencing homelessness. The Day Center is located at the Old Queen’s Gate Jail at 516 Linn Street, Cincinnati, OH. They are open seven days a week from 9am to 5pm. Lunch will be provided daily in partnership with Our Daily Bread. Peer support/Navigational Specialist will be available to lend and help those experiencing homelessness by sharing testimonials on how they overcame addiction, mental health issues, and systemic poverty to become healthy productive members of society. Our peers will also connect those in need to vital resources in our area such as referrals to detox, mental health services, and much more. There are many gap’s in homeless services during the day. Maslow’s Army Day Center will ensure that individuals experiencing homelessness have somewhere warm to go during the day. Many times those experiencing homelessness will walk into stores, libraries, and restaurants to seek a moment of warmth before being forced to go back into the city streets to endure the frigid winter temperatures. Maslow’s Army Day Center will enable those to no longer dread the bitter temperatures but to find hope and a warm place to begin to dream again of a bigger and brighter tomorrow! Many Thanks to our generous donors and supporters!
David Mann for Cincinnati Mayor
I have served this community as councilman, mayor, member of congress and, most recently, as vice mayor and chair of the budget and finance committee. In this most challenging time of unrest and the coronavirus, experience and wisdom count more than ever before. Humbly, I believe that my years of public service have prepared me to be mayor in this particularly challenging moment. I ask for your help on this journey.
