About Our Mission

2018 has marked the year in which The Jeff Ruby Foundation turned its focus onto what we believe to be one of the most vulnerable populations in Cincinnati: at-risk youth and foster kids. Along with helping alleviate many of the root causes that drive larger systemic issues like poverty, homelessness, and hunger, we have set our sights on fundamentally improving the outcomes for everyone involved in the current foster care system.

Our Next Steps

We have embarked on a 12-24 month strategic planning mission that will identify precisely the areas in which we need to direct our efforts and resources along with the community, business, governmental and philanthropic entities with which we will partner to achieve these goals.

So far in 2018, we have made remarkable progress. With your help, we held a wonderfully successful fundraiser in April raising over $600,000. We have collaborated with numerous organizations to both refine our objectives as well as determine how to help them achieve theirs. We have networked and met with local, state, and national legislators and staff with the intention of further developing the important relationships that will help us drive future change. We’ve attended seminars and symposiums and were invited to keynote an event for the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute (C.C.A.I.) in Washington, DC.

We’re excited about the direction of The Jeff Ruby Foundation’s efforts so far, but we’re just getting started. Please stay tuned as we continue building the strategic roadmap for how, with your help, we plan to make a significant difference in the lives of young Cincinnatians and others.
