97.5 WONE is proud to give back to those who have served our country. You may have heard us mention Valor Home and wondered, "What is Valor Home?"
The Harry Donovan Jr. Valor Home of Summit County is a transitional housing program for homeless veterans. They help residents through structured and engaging therapies such as art, music and life skills. Each resident is assigned a support worker to offer advocacy and encouragement. Valor Home provides support services to residents both on-site and in the community. The program mission of Valor Home is, "To support homeless veterans in our community in their efforts to achieve greater self-sufficiency, including the ability to secure and maintain permanent housing." Each year, 100,000 people are served through their programs. Read more about Valor Home here.
How are we helping?
Funds raised at WONE's booths at both Rock The Lock, and Blossom are donated to Valor Home.
We've also just introduced the WONE Charity Classic at Stonehedge Family Entertainment. Every Sunday you have a chance to bowl for cash prizes in the Tournament Of Champions. A portion of the $25 bowling fee goes to support Valor Home. Find more details about the WONE Charity Classic here.
In addition, 97.5 WONE will be broadcasting live from the lobby of our studios at 1795 West Market Street on December 13th and 14th with Operation Heroes. Stay tuned for details!

As the National Weather Service warns that Wednesday, January 30, 2019 could be one of the coldest days on record, Akron area organizations charged with aiding the homeless are working to ensure that everyone will have access to shelter.
Community Support Services, Inc. operates the Homeless Outreach and Intake Center at 111 E. Voris Street, Akron; bringing supportive services for persons experiencing homelessness under one roof. Individuals who are homeless or at risk for homelessness, have symptoms suggestive of severe and persistent mental illness and/or substance abuse disorder, and who is not already active in mental health and/or addiction treatment is eligible to utilize all the services at the Center. If a homeless individual does not meet program criteria, outreach workers will attempt to connect the individual with other community agencies and services. The Homeless Outreach office can be reached at 330-762-4663.
Haven of Rest Ministries, 175 E. Market Street, Akron, is accepting admissions at all hours in preparation for the cold.
The City of Akron has opened warming centers at the following locations:
All these warming centers will be open from 8:30 am to 10:00 pm.
According to Bob Stokes, President and CEO of Community Support Services, “Recent studies have shown that approximately 700 homeless individuals die each year due to hypothermia. With this dangerous polar vortex forecast this week, we are reaching out to the homeless men and women throughout our community in as many ways as we can to give them this potentially life-saving information.”
Community Support Services, Inc. is a leader in behavioral healthcare for Summit County and the surrounding region. The agency provides comprehensive, high quality, cost-effective treatment, rehabilitation, advocacy, and support for recovery, primarily to persons most in need, to enhance the quality of their lives.
Meanwhile, the Salvation Army of Summit County is responding as well:
(Salvation Army) Local offices of The Salvation Army in Akron and Barberton will be open as warming centers as temperatures are expected to drop to what could be record lows in the area this week.
· Both Summit County Salvation Army locations will serve as drop in center/warming sites Tuesday through Thursday, January 29 through January 31, 2019.
· Hours for the downtown Akron location, 190 S. Maple Street, south of St. Vincent de Paul Church on West Market Street, will be from 9:00AM to 4:00PM.
· The Barberton location, 560 Wooster Road West, will be open from 9:30AM to 4:00PM.
