Tender Mercies Needs Books To Enrich Lives Of Homeless
Do you have any extra books to share? If you donate them to Tender Mercies for their new library, you’ll be enriching the lives of Cincinnati’s homeless…not only by giving residents something to read and talk about, but also by giving them an opportunity to be productive because the library is run by people who live there.
Tender Mercies provides housing and supportive services for people who are homeless and who have a mental and/emotional disability. For the 150 people who call it, they offer an environment conducive to recovery – where an individual’s strengths are celebrated daily and barriers to success are addressed in a strengths-based, solution-focused manner. They partner with residents to help them achieve maximum self-sufficiency according to their ability. The residents run a Snack Shack to provide the needed personal items and food and its newly opened Library that has books, CD’s, video’s and games.
