Give to Good Works

110,000 – nights of shelter provided by The Timothy House so far… 

TH new porchAll funds raised through the Good Works WALK go to support the Timothy House located on the west side of Athens, the only home for people experiencing homelessness in 8 rural southeast Ohio counties.  Since 1981, Good Works has provided more than 110,000 nights of shelter to men, women and children who have no place to sleep.

It costs $40 to provide one night of shelter at the Timothy House. This allows us to offer a warm welcome, a comfortable bed, a hot shower, a family-style dinner, and a clean and safe community atmosphere. With a little time, and the loving-care and assistance of our staff and volunteers, we are able to help those who stay with us get back on their feet and find housing as they pursue education, employment or other opportunities.
