About The Broken Bus Ministry
Run entirely by volunteers with no paid staff.
Currently in its 8th year of operation, The Broken Bus Ministry is a grass-roots, Christian organization brought to life by a Liberty Township family in 2013. After serving individuals experiencing homelessness with their church and falling in love with the “people of the streets” in Cincinnati, the local family of four decided to venture out on their own. What began as regular adventures downtown to serve food out of their car evolved into the purchasing of a mobile service vehicle which now drives the streets of downtown Cincinnati weekly; feeding, clothing and building relationships with people experiencing homelessness in our city.
The family used community resources to transform an old, small, bus into a mobile service vehicle that now houses food, clothing, shoes, toiletries, blankets, bibles and a vast array of other necessities. Transforming the previous back doors intended for a wheelchair lift into a serving window allows for volunteers from the community to join in the trips downtown, in a safe yet intimate way.
While spreading the love of Jesus to those in need throughout the greater Cincinnati area is one of our top priorities, The Broken Bus firmly believes it is equally important to provide members of our own community the opportunity to serve others. Groups of up to five people, ages 12 and above, are encouraged to serve on the front lines by riding on the bus.
The ministry operates out of a modest office space in Fairfield, Ohio. All individuals involved in the ministry donate their time. There is no paid staff. A Board of Directors oversees the ministry. The founder of the ministry makes regular visits to schools, companies and events to present information about the ministry. We also welcome groups of all ages to visit our Fairfield facility.
