SPECIAL MESSAGE: Updated March 25, 2020
Bake Me Home is sensitive to the challenges that COVID-19 presents to us all and is making daily decisions to safely support local families. All cookie baking and cookie mix assembly sessions have been paused. We are providing families utilizing local shelters and food pantries with Kroger gift cards in lieu of our signature Bake Me Home Tote Bags.
At this time, volunteer activities have been suspended, our small part-time staff is working from home on FULL pay, and our Bake Me Home Bash (our largest annual fundraiser) has been canceled. We will continue to monitor the situation and make programming and volunteer changes as we are able.
Thank you for your continued support!
We are 18-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 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.

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.
