History of LCCH

LCCH has undertaken community planning and education activities since its founding in 1992, and began offering Transitional Housing and supportive services for homeless families in 1993 with 4 housing units. In 1999, LCCH formally established Project Homeline, a multi-faceted homelessness prevention program that serves over 1000 households per year. Since 2005, LCCH has partnered with the Licking County Board of Developmental Disabilities to provide single family homes and facilitate independent living for their clients. LCCH has also provided free income tax preparation for eligible taxpayers through the IRS-sponsored Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program since 2006. In 2013, the Supportive Services for Veteran Families program was added, serving over 90 veteran households per year.  Returning Home Ohio, which offers re-entry assistance to ex-offenders was launched in 2014.  LCCH is funded through a variety of federal, state and private sources.
