The Shelter was organized in 1993 with the expressed purpose of creating transitional and emergency housing for the growing number of homeless persons in the Owensboro-Daviess County region. The ultimate goal is to provide assistance to their residents in securing permanent housing. The shelter operates a soup kitchen providing a daily meal, serving an average of 130 meals per day. Funds raised will allow the shelter to continue its mission of providing food and shelter to families within the area.
