Our Mission..

Laundry Love Cincinnati assists low/no-income families and individuals meet an overlooked, basic need—the washing of clothes and bedding. Laundry fees are paid for while volunteers assist with laundry services, entertain children, and create a caring space at the laundromat.

We believe that meeting this basic need is not about charity, but about compassion, which is mutually-life-changing through relational reciprocity. By turning our empathy into acts of service, we can help those who are house-less feel human again, and even allow families to redirect their funds to other basic, everyday necessities.

By converting local laundromats into a place where the walls are broken down of social, economic, and cultural constructs that divides people, and into a place where people can gather, we can rekindle trust and offer hope within a community.

Our goal is ultimately to help make the world a better place 1% at a time. While Cincinnati is a small pocket of the world, many small, humble acts of compassion can add up to become an impactful life-changing experience.

Through the work and partnership of a community, we can better the quality of life of a family or individual in poverty in a small, but impactful way through laundry and through love.
