The SON Café
Serving Our Neighbors (SON) through the Impact Center
The Impact Center is a faith-based charitable organization operating out of Access Church that finds and fills the needs of struggling people in the greater Cincinnati Area. The Impact Center aims to not only meet the immediate needs of communities like providing food and clothing but also focuses on the full successful transformation of people’s lives, all free of charge.
Our mission is to connect broken people to a community of support by offering free resources and services that address immediate and long-term needs in the areas of poverty, addiction, and abuse. The Impact Center serves as a resource center focused on finding solutions to homelessness, hunger, and the lack of education through residential and community outreach programs.
The Cafe Multiple times a week the Impact Center feeds hot meals to the homeless and people who are in need. During this time, you will find people connecting and networking together from a diverse background. These precious people help each other overcome an array of difficulties in life.
Food Pantry The Impact Center provides a well-stocked food and personal item ministry. Each week multiple families will find food assistance to help them through a time of need in their life.
Treasured Life Clothing (TLC) Charles wants you to know that every life is treasured and should be treated with tender loving care.
The closet provides clothing items to individuals who are in need. Guests of the Impact Center can browse through men’s, women’s, and children’s clothes to select the garments that best suit their needs.
Hair Salon Hair cuts are available during cafe hours once per month for the needy. (Call for dates)
Health Clinic We expect to have a health clinic in the near future operated by a fully licensed Nurse Practitioner. Through the clinic, we will offer basic medical care and consultations. Please be patient as we work to get this program set up. Check back for updates
Christmas Assistance Every Christmas we provide Christmas gifts, stocking and stocking stuffers to local families in need.
Every Tuesday and Thursday from 11 am until 1 pm we serve a hot meal to those in our community that is in need, or simply lonely and looking for some friendship and support.
For some, this is not only a time and place to get a hot meal, but it may be the only fellowship available to them mid-week.
The cafe is one of many opportunities to serve our community here at Access Church.
