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.
HHIS has a larger, 14 bed shelter under construction. It is 95% complete. The remaining work has been delayed due to the frequent wet weather. If the weather cooperates the work will be finished by the end of June or beginning of July 2018. After we are moved into the new building our office will be located on-site. However, the procedure to call for an appointment to apply for shelter will remain in place. Our mailing address of PO Box 1108 will remain the same. We will go back to our previous phone number 740-385-5116. Our new location is 841 Old McArthur Road.
