We currently receive grant dollars from the Ohio Development Services Agency (ODSA) and the Ohio Department of Mental Health & Addiction Services (OhioMHAS). We have also received many donations from Seneca County area agencies and businesses since our planning and construction phase began in 2009. (Special thanks to the Community Task Force, First Call for Help and the United Way office).
We have been open and serving the homeless population in Seneca County since December 5, 2012. Since that time, we have assisted 213 (unduplicated) individuals (154 adults and 59 children).
The bottom line is that this program is working!! We are hopeful to continue to provide supportive housing services to the homeless population of Seneca County for years to come. Please continue to support our efforts. The funding that we receive from state grants is not enough to keep the house open and the programs running. Please share our fundraising link with your friends, families, and co-workers.
Thank you again for sharing this information and for the continued support of our program. Best Regards ...

New Housing Ohio Opening Doors ? Changing Lives
Dear Friends of the Community. In December 2012, the Community Task Force and New Housing Ohio opened the doors to the Morrison House, a transitional home for the homeless in Seneca County. A typical stay for each resident is 90 to 180 days, depending on each resident?s situation.
The Morrison House is a transitional housing facility located in Tiffin, Ohio to help individuals and families who need a shelter from the storms of life. Our programs include shelter, meals, and support services for homeless individuals and families. We allow the residents time to work through their individual issues that have caused them to be homeless. Our staff works with each resident to provide immediate stability. A case manager works with them to develop a plan of hope and recovery from homelessness.
We are seeking assistance from our community to ensure the success of the Morrison House. The following is a list of various opportunities:
FINANCIAL. Certain obligations (i.e., staff salaries, utilities, repairs) will require cash outlays. Prepared meal donations on a monthly basis to provide a hot balanced meal for residents. VOLUNTEER. Time to visit and share skills with residents. Landscaping opportunities and necessary tools/materials.
Your participation and support is greatly appreciated and is vital to the success of our community program. Together we can affect change to help those who are struggling with the challenges of life, giving them hope for a brighter future. If you would like to learn more about our volunteer opportunities, please call the Morrison House at 567-220-6003.
Thank you in advance for your consideration. Sincerely, Ronele Myers Regional Director, Morrison House Facility 107 West Perry Street Tiffin, Ohio 44883, 419-651-8007.
