El Hogar is an Episcopal boys and girls school in Tegucigalpa, the capital of Honduras. Opening its doors to the poor and homeless, El Hogar provides a safe, loving home for about 250 boys and girls. When young men and women leave, they have received a good education and are prepared to work in agriculture, electrical repair, metal work, or woodworking, all skills that are needed in Honduras. Members of St. Timothy's have made numerous trips to El Hogar and an annual youth trip takes place each June.
St. Timothy's and its parishioners sponsor many boys and girls living at El Hogar. St. Timothy's Associate Priest is a member of the Board of Directors of El Hogar Ministries Inc. (EHMI) and others are actively involved in raising funds. Please click here to see more El Hogar mission trip photos. Click here for a great article about El Hogar's work and history. Amazon shoppers can help El Hogar: Before you make any purchases through Amazon, go to El Hogar’s site first, then click on the Amazon link and continue as usual. El Hogar receives 4 - 12% of every purchase made. There is no cost to El Hogar for this service, no time limit, and no cost to you beyond your purchase!
ASP is a home repair ministry with the goal of helping people who can't afford to help themselves by making their homes warmer, safer and dryer.

Boys & Girl's Club
St. Timothy’s Whiz Kids tutoring program for at-risk kids at Mercer Elementary evolved from one day a week tutoring into a Boys & Girl's Club with after-school activities every weekday.
Boys and Girls Clubs across America stress academic success, healthy lifestyles, and good citizenship for at risk students. The programs have an impressive record of successful outcomes!
In May, 2015 a new after-school Boys and Girls Club was started at Mercer Elementary through the efforts of St. Timothy’s and community members. This school year the program will serve 45 students and increase from three afternoons a week to four.
If you would like to be involved, see below or contact Rick Rothhaas
You can help support this program in a number of ways:
1. Volunteer to work with the club. (Training is available.)
2. Volunteer to teach an enrichment activity to the kids, such as a sport, dance, art, sending letters to military or senior citizens, yoga, science projects, music, or any skill you’d like to offer. This can be on a one time or multiple time basis.
3. The program focuses on personal responsibility and strives to reward kids for making good decisions such as finishing homework, helping others, having a positive attitude, etc. Students can earn “money” to buy gifts at the club store. The club can always use little items for the store.
4. Donate to the Boys and Girls Club and specify on the check that it is for Mercer.
Thank you for helping our children!
SHELTERHOUSE (formerly drop inn center)
Shelterhouse is a homeless shelter in Over-the-Rhine neighborhood. Adults and youth prepare Sunday lunch for 200 on the fourth Sunday of every month. Prepared prior to the 9:00 service, volunteers transport and serve the lunch at 12:00 noon.
The Interfaith Hospitality Network is a group of churches, who take turns hosting homeless families who are part of the network. Families sleep and eat breakfast and dinner at the host churches for a period of one week before moving on to another host congregation. During the day, children go to school. Adults go to work or search for work or housing with the assistance of IHN staff. Each host congregation is responsible for providing meals, evening activities, and sleeping accommodations for the guests. All of this work is done by volunteers from the host parishes. St. Timothy's hosts families four times per year. More details about this program can be found here or at IHNcincinnati.org.
Supported by St. Timothy's and other area churches, IPM is a faith based, non-profit agency providing food, clothing and other communal support to families in need in eastern Hamilton county and all of Clermont county. St. Timothy’s volunteers serve in a variety of different capacities, including staffing the Choice Food & Clothing Pantries, general office help, special events and fund raising, and opportunities to serve on the Board of Directors.

Teams of parishioners serve food to 100-150 people on the third Sunday of each month, from 3:00-6:30 p.m., at the Walnut Hills Soup Kitchen. Participants are assigned to a team under the supervision of a coordinator. Each team serves about once every three months. Volunteers of all ages are welcome.
Country Store Workshop
The Workshop ladies meet every Wednesday, 11 am -2 pm, from February until November, preparing handmade crafts to be sold at the annual bazaar held in early November. We welcome people who would like to work on projects at home or contribute any of their own unique creations. At the time of the bazaar, parishioners are called on to contribute baked goods for the cake table. Earnings from the sale are used to fund the work of the parish, as well as for special projects, (i.e., the youth pilgrimage, Inter Parish Ministry, the YWCA’s battered women’s shelter and summer camperships for children).
