It’s been more than 30 years since the Dominican Sisters of Charity in the city’s West End neighborhood began to worry about what would become of the elderly, low-income residents they saw living in Cincinnati’s inner city. Their concern prompted action, and in 1989 they opened EPIC House after several years of planning. EPIC, short for Elderly Persons in Community, has been providing a safe and welcoming place for its residents ever since. “I knew right away that this is where I wanted to be,” said Tony Alexander, who, at 60, is the “baby of the family” at EPIC House. “The people who work here give you a lot of respect and in general it’s a fantastic place to live.”
