Maslow's Army distributes resource guide

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Maslow’s Army has come out with their Spring 2019 resource guide listing local resources for those experiencing homelessness.

The guide details where they can receive free food, free cell phones, showers, laundry, shelters, employment, GED services, as well as sober living centers and detox.

“It’s very important that individuals experiencing homelessness have these resources within their immediate grasp, that’s essentially what the guide does," said Susan Landis, the organization’s president.

The spring 2019 edition will have 25,000 copies in circulation. The cost was phenomenal for a small non-profit, said Samuel Landis, executive director.

Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters and Bengals Offensive Lineman Trey Hopkins stepped forward to help.

Neither are strangers to Maslow’s Army. The organization says both have helped them multiple times in various ways.

Deters has contributed to the printing of the original resource guide back in 2016 as well as helped Maslow’s Army pay for a passenger van during this winter’s polar vortex.

Most recently, Hopkins contributed to the printing of the guide, volunteered multiple times at Maslow’s Army street outreach, loaded up his pickup truck to help tear down, and was on the front lines serving pizza to those in need.

When Trey was asked why he thought it was important to help those in need, he stated “Because it can be anyone of us at any time, if it does happen to you, you would want the hand of the community to help you when you’re in need, that’s why it’s important.”

Contributions can be made for the continual printing cost of these 30 page life saving pamphlets through the Maslow’s Army website at www.maslowsarmy.org or by calling (859)491-ARMY.
