We are 17-year-old twin sisters, Emma and Amy. In July 2008 we started a charity (with a little help from our Mom!) to help moms and kids at a homeless family shelter in Cincinnati, Ohio. Since then we've expanded with the help of thousands of volunteers to include families using local food pantries, kids in foster care, and members of our military.
Check out "Who We Help" to see a list of all the agencies we now serve in Hamilton, Clermont, Butler and Warren Counties. Read more to learn about our cookie mix tote bags, kids' community service, and how we share cookies with troops overseas & local veterans.
Bake Me Home is a charitable organization dedicated to promoting volunteerism and encouraging shared family experiences for those in crisis.
Thank you for 10 years of support!
On April 14th we gathered with some
of our best friends to celebrate programming for:
- Families utilizing homeless/domestic violence shelters and food pantries
- Children in foster care services
- Pediatric cancer survivors
- Military members serving overseas
- Local veterans
One sweet, chocolatey decade by the numbers
Also: 30,000 toothbrushes distributed • 21 community partners • 110,000 cookies baked • 46,000 lives touched
This is the program that started it all! We love baking cookies with our mom, and we thought other kids should have the same chance to bake with their families. We know this can be really hard, especially if they are just moving out of a shelter.
We started the Tote Bag Program so that families could have a fun way to celebrate being together in their new home. We have expanded to include kids in the foster care system, those utilizing food pantries, and pediatric cancer survivors.
Home is often very far away for men and women serving in our military, but you can send a little taste of “BACK HOME” to a service member deployed overseas! Your donation will send 48 Bake Me Home Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies to your loved one.
To extend that sense of “home” to our local veterans, we also provide fresh baked cookies to those who are wounded and sick staying at Fisher House at the VA Medical Center, and participating in Honor Flights to Washington DC.
Our Bake It Forward Program furthers our mission of promoting volunteerism by challenging kids of all ages to do good deeds for others.
Bake It Forward participants complete a series of activities on our Bake It Forward Challenge Card and in return receive two jars of Bake Me Home’s signature Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix; one to keep and one to give as a gift!
