August 2013 Profiles

August is Ohio Gives Back Month

This August we are profiling nonprofits around Ohio who make it their business to help others as part of our “Ohio Gives Back” theme. According to a recent report from the National Center for Charitable Statistics with the Urban Institute, there are more than 60,000 nonprofits operating in Ohio, raising billions of dollars for assistance and research each year and employing nearly 500,000 paid workers. Daybreak, in Dayton, provides homeless, at-risk and troubled youth the support they need and an opportunity to mature, serving nearly 2,000 youth each year in western Ohio. ArtWorks, in Cincinnati, is an award-winning organization that employs and trains local youth to create art with a community impact, employing more than 2,500 youth apprentices and 650 professional artists to create dozens of murals in the Greater Cincinnati area. The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, started by the founder of Wendy’s in Columbus in 1992, is the only national nonprofit public charity dedicated solely to foster care adoptions, with nearly 200 recruiters throughout the U.S. and Canada. Boneyfiddle Arts Center, Inc., in Portsmouth, believes community art centers are a vital part of a healthy and desirable community and for the past three years has brought together people from diverse backgrounds who share a passion for artistic expression. New Heights Educational Group, Inc., in Defiance, was established in 2006 with the goal of promoting literacy for children and adults and recently won silver in the International Business Awards 2013 for Company of the Year – Nonprofit or Government Organizations. Family Connections of Northeast Ohio, in Shaker Heights and Cleveland Heights, was founded by women seeking a place to increase their children’s socialization skills, serving families from 19 communities in northeast Ohio. Mothers Helping Mothers, Inc., in Columbus, started in 2009 to help equip young mothers with the tools necessary to succeed, helping more than 100 mothers last year with the goal to double that number in 2013.

The value of nonprofit organizations to our state is immeasurable. Ohioans looking for a place to help certainly have ample opportunities, with these groups helping lead the way. To learn more, visit the Ohio Association of Nonprofit Organizations at www.oano.org.
