The Highland County Homeless Shelter would like to invite the community to the seventh annual "Strike Out Homelessness" fundraiser on Oct. 21 at Highland Lanes from noon to 4 p.m. (please RSVP). 

The cost is $50 per lane for two hours (shoes included). This is great family fun for less than $9 a bowler, and a pizza special will be offered: $9 for a large one-item pizza and a pitcher of pop. 

If you are unavailable to bowl, lane sponsors are still needed. There will also be a silent auction, raffles and a 50/50 drawing. 

No time to bowl? No problem. Stop by for a chance to win some great prizes, such as tickets to COSI, Newport Aquarium, Cincinnati Zoo, Cincinnati Arts Museum and Hollywood Casino and a chance to win items from many local sponsors, including Amatha Farrens: State Farm Insurance, Walmart, Kmart, Blossoms N’ Buds, Tux & Tan and Merle Norman Cosmetic Studio, to name a few.

All donations will benefit the Highland County Homeless Shelter and the many programs offered to the shelter’s clients. Community support is imperative to the success of the shelter and to assist those in need within the community. Homelessness continues to be a social issue in Highland County. Between Jan. 1, 2016 and Oct. 11, 2017, the Highland County Homeless Shelter has assisted 252 men, women and children with the community’s support.  

The Highland County Homeless Shelter is open 365 days a year. The shelter can offer assistance and support for up to 28 men, women and children, for a maximum of 90 days. Beds, food and shelter are provided, along with access to essential programs and services that enable homeless individuals to rebuild their confidence and their lives. We are happy to serve Highland County & surrounding areas, and we are proud to serve those less fortunate. There is hope. In order to meet our mission and provide services within our community, we rely on the generosity of individuals and businesses for support.
Thank you for supporting the Highland County Homeless Shelter for the past 13 years. Please follow us on Facebook or visit our newly relaunched website at, designed by John House of Little House of Design.
