Hocking Hills Inspire Shelter (HHIS) was founded in December 2011 by a group of likeminded citizens from all faiths and walks of life who were concerned about the growing homeless population in Hocking County. They worked diligently and faithfully toward being able to provide shelter and assistance to those less fortunate within our communities. In May 2012 HHIS received a 501(c)(3) tax exempt status and in December 2012 opened an office in Logan. An emergency shelter was opened in December 2013 and has served numerous families and individuals since that time. HHIS is funded by donations, fundraisers, grants, and immeasurable volunteer support.
