NIAGARA FALLS — The idea of "compassionate business" will be explored at a Monday Oct. 28 mini conference at Historic Holy Trinity, 1419 Falls St. All are welcome at the discussion organized by the Niagara County Coalition for Services to the Homeless.

The mini conference, ongoing from 5 to 7 p.m., is the fourth in a seven-part series by the coalition's Compassionate Niagara committee that aims to focus on how different sectors can work together to make a compassionate community.
