Partnering with 3CDC to Help the Chronically Homeless

Updated: Dec 19, 2023

This fall, Greater Cincinnati Behavioral Health Services, along with our friends at Cincinnati Center City Development Corporation (3CDC), launched a pilot program downtown to work specifically with chronically homeless individuals. The program is also funded in part by the Hamilton County Mental Health and Recovery Services Board.

Joe Rudemiller is the 3CDC VP of Marketing & Communications. “Based on our experience working with GCBHS on the GeneroCity 513 initiative, and analysis of the data we have collected since the program began in 2018, the addition of the Critical Intervention Team is vital to the future success of the program. This team will focus on providing case management services to our most vulnerable clients, allowing the other Outreach Workers in the program to expand their focus and better serve the broader population.”

Floyd Johnson, a GCBHS staffer for over eight years, is the first team member to be hired for the program. “I’m able to spend more time to develop a relationship and build trust. These are the people where all other attempts to get them connected to services have failed. We are hoping to move them

forward, away from homelessness and to a more safe and secure environment.” What drew Floyd to this new program? He says, “I was looking for something that was different. This satisfied my need to help others and be able to give back.”
