A local non-profit holds community breakfast

A local non-profit organization met up, Thursday, for its fourth annual community breakfast.

Tender Mercies, a group based in Over-The-Rhine, provides housing and related services to homeless people who have a history of emotional or mental disabilities.

Guest heard from the president of Xavier University, Father Michael Graham, and learned how they could help the cause.

"People can either give of their time, talent, or treasures at Tender Mercies," said Russell Winters, Chief Executive Officer, "Either through volunteering, giving a financial donation, or gifts of any kind. And they can do that through our website or by calling our main number."

Tender Mercies has provided services to the tri-state's homeless community for more than 25 years.
