Every October, we gather with nearly 300 of our dearest friends, partners, and supporters at Celebrating Our Beloved Community, a fundraising and awards dinner honoring the many varied voices that make up our beloved community.

Each year at this event, we seek a different “lens” through which we can view Over-the-Rhine. We’ve explored the meaning of “community” from the perspective of experts, both local and national. We’ve turned to the voices of our neighborhood, presenting them with the unique weaving of a story teller. Last year, we heard testimonies from residents, neighbors, and staff about how their lives have been touched by Over-the-Rhine Community Housing and the significance of community. Check out these videos we shared in 2016: Todd’s Story and Angie’s Story.
