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.
