Boulware Mission

Who We Are

Boulware Mission is a faith-based shelter that has been serving Owensboro and its surrounding counties since 1921. Boulware’s programs help displaced individuals identify and overcome obstacles to their financial well-being and independence.

Our Self-Sufficiency program assists individuals with employment skills, financial literacy, general education, substance abuse treatment, healthy living, general life skills, faith-building, and more...providing our clients with the tools they need to become independent, contributing members of the community.

Boulware Mission fosters positive change in the lives of displaced men by providing shelter, education, rehabilitation, and licensed substance abuse treatment, empowering them to achieve healthy and independent lives.  Our ultimate goal is to alleviate the core issues that brought our clients to us in the first place and to see them become self-sufficient individuals.

Our Mission  

Our Goal

The mission of Boulware Mission, Inc. is to help displaced individuals become self-sufficient through treatment, education and services.  Our focus is on recovery from the root causes that brought our clients to Boulware in the first place. 

Our goal is to see each of our clients become self-sufficient. We do this by identifying and alleviating contributing factors to their situation.

Our Community  

We serve people from the following counties: Daviess, Hancock, McLean, Ohio, Union, and Webster.

According to Daviess County Community Health Needs Assessment, substance abuse is one of the biggest problems that the County faces today

85% of our clients who go through treatment will enter recovery from addiction

Our Self Sufficiency program addresses each participant's individual needs, helping them to reestablish themselves in the community and assume their responsibilities as productive citizens

Boulware Mission is the oldest shelter in Owensboro - we are unique because we are delivering a well-rounded program to displaced individuals and addressing more than just housing needs

Boulware is a proud United Way agency - we rely heavily on the community for donations to stay running 

100% of clients who attended financial literacy classes demonstrated an increase in knowledge and 91% developed a personal budget

We would not be here today without individuals, businesses, and other supporting non profits. We have been around for over 99 years because of the kind hearts of people who believe in our Mission.
