SPECIAL MESSAGE: Updated January 21, 2021
Bake Me Home is sensitive to the challenges that COVID-19 continues to present to us all. We are making daily decisions to safely support local families and maintain the health of our staff and volunteers. Although our volunteer activities have been modified, we are serving an even greater number of parents and kids in our area during this difficult time.
The work of the past ten months would not be possible without the incredible support we have continued to receive, thank you!
We are 19-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.
