OPERATED BY CITY GOSPEL MISSION
The Jobs Van operates four days per week, picking up 10 individuals each day and transporting them to a job site for a day's work. The Jobs Van program offers a positive alternative to panhandling, and helps connect panhandlers to social service agencies that provide opportunities for shelter, employment, and mental health and substance abuse services. Pick-ups are made at random locations in downtown Cincinnati and Over-the-Rhine. Participants engage in community beautification efforts and are provided a free lunch during their shift. At the conclusion of their shift, participants are paid $9/hour in cash for their labor, and are dropped off downtown between 3 and 4 PM.
