Run for the Roses Event - May 7th!

The Higher Education Mentoring Initiative

The Higher Education Mentoring Initiative (HEMI) is a partnership between Hamilton County Commissioner Greg Hartmann, Hamilton County Job and Family Services, the University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati State Technical and Community College, and Great Oaks. HEMI seeks to reduce delinquency and helps prepare foster children for post-secondary education. The initiative will recruit, train and support mentors to establish long term, positive relationships with foster care youth. The mentors will assist, encourage and support academic achievement through high school and help create a direct pathway to higher education.

On Saturday, May 7, the University of Cincinnati’s College of Education, Criminal Justice, and Human Services is hosting a Kentucky Derby fundraising event (Run for the Roses) from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. at the Peterloon Estate in Indian Hill to help support HEMI and the foster youth it serves.  All monies raised will support mentors, HEMI programs, and college scholarships. We hope you will find it in your heart to support this worthy cause.
