We Provide More Than Housing
Tender Mercies exists to serve the vulnerable and abandoned. Our residents have lived on the streets while trying to cope with mental illness. We provide a home where individuals can live safely with dignity. We connect residents with all the services they need and give them the tools to return to being a productive and respected member of the community. Many have neglected their basic medical care while living on the streets or in homeless tent camps. In addition, many of the homeless have been exposed to the elements and disease. By helping our residents tend to basic needs, we provide access to an array of greatly needed physical (medical, vision, nutritional, and dental) and mental health services.
Our in-house supportive services include income and entitlement assistance, start-up welcome packet (linens, hygiene items, etc.), skills assessment and training, crisis intervention, interagency referrals, collaboration with other agencies for services, medication monitoring, pre-vocational services, recreation opportunities, volunteer hot meal program, a resident commissary, and substance abuse education.
Our programs are funded through government grants, United Way of Greater Cincinnati, private foundations, and individual donations.
