CINCINNATI (FOX19) - The Cincinnati Health Department has cleared Maslow’s Army to resume its Sunday outreach program following a halt due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Maslow’s Army provides basic needs services for those experiencing homelessness.

The restart drew 105 people to the Hamilton County Justice Center Plaza and those who turned out received boxed LaRosa’s pizzas and a personal hygiene kit. The program also included COVID-19 screening.

Data collected from those screenings will go to the health department, county, and city officials.

Executive Director Sam Landis says Maslow’s Army had a string of 165 Sundays running the outreach program before the pandemic.
